Memorial Day is a federal holiday. It occurs on the final Monday in May. This is a day to remember all of the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
While World War II was the last legally declared war by the U.S., it is only fitting and proper to remember and honor all of the men and women who died in all of the U.S. military actions. It is also fitting and proper to remember all of the men and women who died in the process of gathering intelligence for the protection of our Republic even though their names may remain unknown forever.
