Memorial Day (USA)

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a US federal holiday in the last Monday of May to remember the soldiers who died while serving in the US Armed Forces. The weekend before Memorial Day is known as Memorial Day Weekend and all American Cemeteries overseas has his own Memorial Day ceremony.

Since 2008 we have attended every Memorial Day on the Ardennes and Henri-Chapelle cemeteries. These are held on the Saturday before Memorial Day. On the Sunday, the American cemetery in Margraten has his ceremony and we try to visit that one also.

A great way to honor all these men who died during the war!
