Virtually Celebrating Memorial Day

May is National Military Appreciation month and also the month that we celebrate Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a day to solemnly reflect on military personnel and veterans who have died.

And while this year will be different than others in the ways we celebrate our deceased service members, there are still plenty of opportunities to reflect and honor them.

American Legion Virtual Ceremony
The American Legion is asking for people to share the names of those that they are honoring personally on Memorial Day. The Legion will share the list of names over social media during Memorial Day weekend. To submit information to participate, please click here.
