It’s Memorial Day weekend in the United States and it’s a time to honor those brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice while defending our freedom.
History and the Farmers Almanac have some good information on the day of remembrance that includes the history of the day, news, pictures and more.
WalletHub has some interesting stats on Memorial Day history which include the number of US Armed Service members who have lost their lives in battle and the number of graves at Arlington that have been adorned with American Flags for the memorial weekend.
Uplifting musical performances, documentary footage and dramatic readings that honor the military service of all our men and women in uniform, their families at home and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice will be featured at The National Memorial Day Concert.
Young kids can visit great sites with information on what Memorial Day is as well as activities, cards, printables and more to help them recognize the special day. Apples 4 the Teacher and Military.com are good places to look.
Thank You for your service and sacrifice, God Bless America today and …”Into Tomorrow”!
