…that each year on Memorial Day a national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time? We are all busy and enjoy having the extra day off to enjoy a BBQ, extra time with family, shop the sales or maybe just catch up on yard work. Wouldn’t it be nice if we took a few moments to remember and thank our military, past and present? They are after all the reason we have the day off! I think we should all set an alarm on our phones (I know you all have them on you right now 😉 ) for 3:00 and honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
Who’s with me?!
Do you have an American flag that you bring out for Memorial day and other important days? If you didn’t know, there are A LOT of rules that apply. I always knew the basics, like never let the flag touch the ground and always have it lit up at night if you leave it out but there is way more to our beautiful flag. For example, on Memorial Day it should be at half-staff until noon. For a pretty thorough list of the American Flag Guidelines click here
