Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

The National Memorial Day Parade was created to call attention to the true meaning of the holiday – honoring our fallen heroes. Each year, throughout its television broadcast, the parade features personal stories of men and women who lost their lives in service to America – a reminder of the price of our freedom.

Our American Legion Post does a very similar program featuring residents from East Rochester as well a a wreath ceremony at the "Station of Heros".

NOTE: The holiday originally known as Decoration Day was formerly observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day to honor and mourn those who died while serving in the U.S. Military. Many volunteers place an American flag on graves of military personnel in national cemeteries.
