May 21 : 4 days to Memorial Day

Did you know that Memorial Day is observed in the United States on the last Monday in May?

The holiday is intended as a national memorial for those who have died serving their country, along with their bereaved families. Since 1971, when Congress enacted the Uniform Holidays Bill, Memorial Day — together with Presidents’ Day and Labor Day — have been celebrated on Mondays following a three-day weekend.

Memorial Day is America’s day to remember those who have died serving our nation, and to honor their families. We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Memorial Day (05/25)! So stop by again tomorrow.
