The United States of America is observing Memorial Day on the last Monday of May. People enjoy the national holiday in various ways. It is fitting to think of the main purpose of this day.
Memorial Day is observed in observed in US. The date fixed for this holiday is the last Monday of May. The country has been celebrating this national holiday since 1971. Most of the Americans enjoy this three-day weekend in picnics, entertainment parties and holiday shopping. Parades and marching bands are conducted in city centers. Although veterans are honored on this day, the significance of this day seems to be lost amid the celebrations.

I just attended the Memorial Day Ceremony at our village cemetery. The observance was sponsored by the city and the Memorial Post of the VFW and American Legion. The program included a parade assembly and march to the monument. A proclamation was presented by the mayor of the city.

The traditional ceremony of honoring the veterans enabled me realize the great significance of the day.
1) Memorial Day pays homage to the war dead heroes, who served in the United States armed Forces. It commemorates all, those who served the country to protect the liberty of the nation.
2) It honors and extends gratitude to the veterans who are still living.
3) People visit the local cemeteries where the war dead heroes are buried and console the relatives who gather there.
4) The country takes an oath to safeguard the interests of the nation.
5) Children learn about patriotism and service to the nation. It is a great occasion to share the values of patriotism.
