Memorial Day, 2009

May 25, 2009 at 7:57 AM

In the U.S., we celebrate Memorial Day today, May 25, 2009. The holiday means different things to different people: the first three day weekend from work since February, a backyard barbecue shared with friends and family, the opening of the local swimming pool. The original meaning of the holiday, however, was the commemoration of American men and women who died while in the military service. The following puts a human face on the meaning of the holiday.
