Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering and honoring all those who have died while serving in the military.
Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day, which is held in November and celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.
In 2019, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 27. Memorial Day is considered to be the unofficial start of summer and many people celebrate with backyard barbecues and pool parties.
