Memorial Day Mysteries

Memorial Day aka Decoration Day is a day of remembrance of those men and women who who fell protecting us, of those who didn’t come home. Many people go to cemeteries and memorials on the last Monday in May, and there’s a tradition to fly the flag at half mast. Memorial Day in the U.S. is part of a three day holiday weekend. Many think of this weekend as the beginning of Summer, a time for Barbecues, the Beach, the Cabin, and S’mores.
