Hello There Clammers,
It’s Memorial Day in the United States. For anyone unaware, this is the day that Americans usually think of as a three-day weekend, the unofficial kick off to summer! Many will spend the day BBQing and enjoying an extra day off work. Others recognize it has something to do with the military.
Memorial Day is a US federal holiday where we remember those who died while serving in the Armed Forces. A lot of countries have similar holidays. Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War. It has gone on to include all wars and those who dies while serving the United States. Many people visit cemeteries during this holiday, often placing a US flag on service member’s graves.
Here at Family Guy Addicts we just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all those who have served, all those who currently serve, and all those who lost their lives defending their country.
So if you’re in the US and enjoying this extra day off (I know I am), take a moment while spending some time with your family at the BBQ (or on the beach) to say a moment of thanks to those who have fallen defending our country.
