There are many ways to experience the holiday. Remember and celebrate its purpose. Recall our own family and community stories about military service and pass them on to others. Take action for the men, women and families who currently serve in the armed forces and show them how much we appreciate their sacrifices and commitment. Choose to connect to the holiday’s history with a patriotic sing-along. There is no one right way to celebrate. Your choice is the best choice.
Many of us love a traditional Memorial Day picnic. See our suggestions for ways to have your cook-out and a memorable holiday celebration too!
