Many Americans look forward to Memorial Day weekend because of the fun festivities including camping, barbeques, and time off work. However, Memorial Day is more than the festivities. This federal holiday is reserved for mourning, honoring and remembering U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces.
