For many who have served, Memorial Day has a very special meaning. For some it’s a day of pain, remembering the lives lost during combat. For others it’s a time to honor the fallen and let others know why it’s important to do so. But for most all who served, it is more than just a day off from work, barbecues and family gatherings.
Memorial Day is this Monday, a day when Americans remember those who gave their lives for their country. Many families are busy decorating the graves of loved ones before services on Monday.
Crews have been working the past few weeks preparing Fort Snelling National Cemetery in the Twin Cities for the annual Memorial Day program Monday.
