Memorial Day: A Time for RemembranceMay 29, 2023 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
Today is the Memorial Day federal holiday in the United States. Observed on the last Monday in May, the day is set aside to honor and mourn U.S. military personnel who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. The holiday’s roots trace back to remembrance of the soldiers on both sides of the U.S. Civil War.
Falling, as it does, at the end of May, the Memorial Day holiday occurs when school academic years are generally winding down, social activities are shifting to outdoor events, and early season harvests start to mature. Memorial Day, with its three-day weekend, has evolved over time into a role as the unofficial start of summer.
Whether you take time to honor the fallen or focus your attention on the turn of the seasons, I-Connect007 wishes you all a happy Memorial Day.
