Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day is an American holiday recognized across the United States. It’s celebrated on the last Monday of May each year and is a national holiday. It’s an important holiday where we remember and honor the men and women who have paid the ultimate price while serving our country – military personnel who died in the line of duty.
Many events take place both locally and nationally during Memorial Day weekend to honor the fallen. Reach out to your local city government agencies to find out the events planned in your area.
Here are a few ways to honor and remember the fallen.
- At 3:00 PM, local time, observe a minute of silence.
- Participate in a charity run over Memorial Day weekend.
- Make a donation to military support groups.
- Visit cemeteries and memorials and decorate with wreaths, flags or flowers.
- Attend a local Memorial Day festival, parade or concert.
At Bio-One, we remember, honor and thank all those who have died defending our country. We appreciate and are thankful to all those who have served and continue to serve and protect our country, and defend our freedom and keep us safe.
