Today, May 29, is Memorial Day. It is a federal holiday in the United States used to remember the brave men and women who died while serving in the military.
Memorial Day is viewed as the unofficial start of the summer, while falling on the final Monday every May.
Many people confuse Memorial Day with Veterans Day — which is used to observe and honor those who are currently serving in the armed forces.
Along with some traditional observations like visiting cemetaries, proudly displaying your flag or attending a parade, we all tend to over indulge in barbecue and alcohol. But make sure you drink responsibly, and actually take some time to honor those who have fallen while serving the country we are proud to call home.
