Memorial Day is yet another day to remember the brave American soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the USA, their homeland and its citizens. The three-day weekend is a solemn occasion to commemorate their bravery.

Much more than a three-day weekend, Memorial Day holiday is meant to reflect on the true meaning of the day, to honor America's fallen heroes and be thankful to them for their efforts and their profound patriotism. The somber tones of 'Taps' at 3.00 p.m., the National Moment of Remembrance, and the wreaths placed by those who take time to remember the sacrifices adorn the graves of the soldiers. The Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery is perhaps the most visited memorial site in America.

Memorial Day is also the time to think about and give aids to the families, widows and orphans of the war dead. The memorial sites are strewn all over America and it is our duty to honor the memories of these unknown and distinguished soldiers by decorating their graves with flowers and lighting candles on them. 'Taps' is the standard music piece recognized by the Army and played at military funerals since 1891. Memorial Days seeks to stir the patriotic feelings of every American citizen and remind them that they owe their freedom and liberty to the finest of young men and women who laid down their lives for them.
