Memorial Day - What Does it Mean?

You could google it.

You could look it up.

You could go to the VFW and ask.

Maybe check out those guys riding motorcycles from Arizona to DC - they have a message.

Memorial Day in the USA. What is it?

But if you want to get a feel for the real holiday, check these movies for the weekend:

  • Saving Private Ryan
  • A Bridge Too Far
  • Taking Chance
  • Last Flag Flying
  • Section 60: Arlington National Cemetary
  • Band of Brothers, entire series

I add Casablanca.

I know this is the first weekend of the American Summer - new movies, music, barbecues and lake time...I get it.

Before you hit the beer and the libations, go to the nearest Memorial or VFW and give thanks. Give thanks for the ones who gave everything so you could cold call on a Monday, or close on the 29th of the month.

If not for them...
