a day on which those who died in active military service are remembered, traditionally observed on May 30 but now officially observed on the last Monday in May.
My grandfather, grandmother, father, husband, and son are all veterans of the United States Armed Forces. The Army, Navy and Air Force are represented within their ranks and my father’s flag is pictured here.
The American flag is an important part of any military funeral. You are invited to click here to learn what the American Legion writes about flag folding procedures and explains the meaning of the 13 folds.
As we celebrate Memorial Day with picnics and time off, please pause, thank our veterans for their service, and take a few moments to learn more about the American Flag.
