Memorial Day is a federal holiday to remember the men and women who died while serving our country in the military.

Many people visit cemeteries and watch parades as an opportunity to pause and remember the men and women of the military who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.

For many, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer and they celebrate by opening their pools, with barbecues, camping and other outdoor activities with family and friends.

This Monday, May 25, please take a minute to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day.
