A time to honor America’s heroes!

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself!” / Joseph Campbell

It is traditional to fly the flag of the United States at half staff from dawn until noon. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries. Memorial Day is combined with Jefferson Davis’ Birthday in Mississippi.
