What is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day honors American soldiers who died serving the United States in wars.  The federal holiday is celebrated on the last Monday in May each year, and it was first observed on May 30, 1868 to honor fallen Civil War soldiers. If you’d like to pay tribute to the U.S. men and women who died while serving in the military, you can join in the minute of silence at 3:00pm, local time.  You can learn more by visiting CNN’s Memorial Day fast facts.

Did You Know: In 1968, Memorial Day was moved from its traditional May 30 date to the last Monday in May in order to ensure a three-day weekend. We wish those of you celebrating a safe and enjoyable long weekend!
