A day to honor those fallen in service to our country. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all.
- Proper flag etiquette for Memorial Day: It is proper to display the flag from sunrise to sunset — the flag is to be half staff until noon.
- Significance of the poppy: In 1915 Moina Michael was the first to wear red poppies on Memorial Day to honor those who died serving the nation during war. She sold poppies to her friends and co-workers with the money http://healthsavy.com/product/adderal/ going to benefit servicemen in need.
- Since the late 1950s on the Thursday before Memorial Day more than 260,000 flags are placed at each gravestone in Arlington National Cemetery and then guarded by the 3rd U.S. Infantry through the weekend.
