At 3:00 p.m. local time on Monday, May 25, 2020, the National Moment of Remembrance takes place by silently thanking the men and women of the United States military who gave their lives for our country.1
Originally, Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day and was held on May 30, 1868. This date was chosen because it wasn’t the anniversary of any particular battle. On this date, 5,000 people decorated the graves of 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried at Arlington National Cemetery.1
While many Memorial Day celebrations will be curtailed by the coronavirus crisis, we can practice social distancing while planting flags near, placing honor wreaths on, and tidying around the graves of veterans who died in service to our country.
We want to say “Thank You” to all our veterans for their service and sacrifice.
