Happy Memorial Day!


What are you planning to do today to celebrate this Memorial Day?
May it be filled with fun, friendship, and new beginnings of summer. And, most importantly, remembering and honoring those that have fallen
and are currently fighting for us in our military.

Here are a few official ways to celebrate today:

  • Visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.

  • Visiting memorials.

  • Flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.

  • Flying the 'POW/MIA Flag' as well (Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act).

  • Participating in a "National Moment of Remembrance": at 3 p.m. to pause and think upon the true meaning of the day, and for Taps to be played.

  • Renewing a pledge to aid the widows, widowers, and orphans of our fallen dead, and to aid the disabled veterans.

Thanks for stopping by.
