Memorial Day


Photo by: Kasey Hartlieb, Friendswood

Memorial Day was created to honor the men and women who have served in the military. Hopefully, you have your own traditions for this special day, but if not, here’s a list of things to do on Memorial Day:

Write a member of the military.  There are thousands of men and women actively serving in the military. Visit, to find out how you can write them and brighten their day.

Fly the US Flag.  Flying the flag is a great way to say thanks and show your support. Also, if you have a POW/MIA flag, this is also a great day to fly it.

Participate in the National Moment of Remembrance.  At 3 p.m. local time on each Memorial Day, pause for one minute to remember those who have given their all for us.

Thank a veteran.  Take time out of your day to stop and thank someone who has served our country in the military. So many veterans say that a simple act of gratitude means more to them than most people realize.
