Memorial Day

Every Memorial Day, Americans remember the debt of gratitude we owe to our veterans. On this important day, communities across our Nation stop to remember and to honor the great sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform. Through the course of our Nation's history, more than 41 million Americans have served the cause of freedom and more than a million have died in its name. On this noble American holiday, we solemnly pause to remember the men and women who gave their lives in service to our Nation. We honor those generations and individuals who fought for liberty and in defiance of tyranny that this unique experiment in self-government might long endure.
