Memorial Day is for honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military fighting for our liberty and freedom.

Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.
