Memorial DayThe Memorial Day holiday takes place on the last Monday of May. This holiday commemorates United States service men and women who died in military service to their country. It began first to honor those that died during the American Civil War. After WWI, it expanded to include those who died in any war or military action.
People originally observed Memorial Day on May 30 and many advocate doing so again.
