Remember the meaning of Memorial Day?

Monday is Memorial Day, a Federal holiday that commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. The holiday was originally intended to commemorate Union soldiers of the Civil War, but later came to be known as a day to honor all Americans who died in a war. 
   Many Americans also use the day to pay a visit to the cemetery to remember loved ones.
