For some, Memorial Day can mark the official start of summer. However, it’s more than just a three-day weekend to gather with family, eat delicious food and soak up the sun. Memorial Day is a time to remember the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country.

You may already have traditions for celebrating Memorial Day, but if you don’t, here are a few ways that you can honor the true meaning of the holiday:

  • Visit a local cemetery and place flags or flowers on the graves of fallen heroes or donate flowers for soldiers’ graves.
  • Fly the United States flag (discover proper etiquette here).
  • Participate in the “National Moment of Remembrance” at 3:00 p.m. local time for a moment of silence to honor and remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
  • Research trusted military organizations and non-profits that need donations and choose a cause that is important to you.
  • Brush up on your American History so you can share the details of why we celebrate Memorial Day with your family and friends.
  • Write a letter or make a phone call to offer gratitude and well wishes to the loved ones of a fallen soldier in your community.
  • Decorate with red, white, and blue.
  • Post a heartfelt tribute to our fallen soldiers on social media.
