Remember you have an important appointment this Memorial Day at 3pm.
In 2000, the "National Moment of Remembrance Act" became law. It designates 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day each year as the National Moment of Remembrance, in honor of the men and women of the United States who died in the pursuit of freedom and peace.
"Each Memorial Day, the Nation honors those Americans who died while defending our Nation and its values. While these heroes should be honored every day for their profound contribution to securing our Nation's freedom, they and their families should be especially honored on Memorial Day. The observance of a National Moment of Remembrance is a simple and unifying way to commemorate our history and honor the struggle to protect our freedoms." President Bill Clinton
Consider honoring our fallen by making this a tradition in your family as you celebrate this Memorial Day.
