Memorial Day Weekend - Remember, Please

Memorial Day is a day set aside in the USA to remember those who died in service of their country in one of the armed forces. While Veteran's Day celebrates members of our armed services past and present, Memorial Day adds a layer pf poignancy since we are specifically acknowledging those who died in service.

In the USA the Memorial Day weekend also signals the unofficial start of the Summer season, with much grilling, parading, and big scale sports events like the Indianapolis 500.
