Memorial Day marks the start of the summer vacation season with warmer weather and summer parties. Many businesses promote Memorial Day sales with the patriotic colors of red, white and blue and this Memorial Day eCard could serve as a sales flyer or a party invitation.
While many of us are enjoying the long holiday weekend, let's also remember that the Memorial Day holiday honors the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. It's a time when people go to cemeteries and memorials honoring family members and others who have died in military service while serving our country and ensuring our freedom.
Did you know...On Memorial Day, the U.S. flag is raised to the top and then slowly lowered to the half-mast position. At noon, it is raised again to full-staff to show America's resolve that those who died in service did not do so in vain. Concerts and parades mark this celebration of freedom and honor those that gave their lives protecting our freedom.
Holidays: Armed Forces Day, July 4th, Memorial Day
