... we know how important it is to keep in contact with family.

Memorial day is a traditional day of remembrance for the men and women who died while serving the United States Armed Forces. The United States Federal Holiday, which occurs every year on the final Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who fell during the Civil War.

Cities and towns across America host Memorial Day parades each year, often featuring current military personnel and members of veterans’ organizations. Some of the larger parades are held in New York, Chicago and Washington, DC. Memorial Day is also generally associated with the start of the summer season, it is common tradition to inaugurate the outdoor cooking season with a barbecue.

Families around America have more recently turned the holiday into a time for family gatherings and a celebration of life, with many special Memorial Day events happening around the U.S. at the beach, national media events, shopping, fireworks displays and the Indianapolis 500. One of the longest-standing traditions, the premier auto race event brought families together since 1911.
