Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

"I thank God for my life. And for the stars and stripes. May freedom forever fly. Let it ring. Salute the ones who died. The ones that give their lives. So we don?t have to sacrifice. All the things we love"
~Zac Brown Band
