Ways to honor soldiers on Memorial Day

MEMORIAL_DAY

Fly the flag

There is a hidden secret behind raising and waving the flag at Memorial Day. Abiding by traditional flag etiquettes, the flag is raised at half-staff from sunrise to noon to commemorate and pay respect to those soldiers who gave their lives fighting. And afternoon, the flag is raised at full-staff for the remainder of the day in remembrance of those active and living veterans who continue to carry on the proud flag on active duty.

Show appreciation

Displaying respect and affection can uplift and motivate soldiers on duty and active on the field. Saying words as easy as, “Thank you” can make their day regardless of what harsh environments and circumstances they endure. You can show your gratitude by sending a thank you letter or a thank you bouquet.

Help military families

Any helping gesture is highly appreciated in a military household. Simple gestures such as helping families with their chores, donating blood to valuable organizations that aid soldiers and old items and clothes which are of no use can be recycled and given to families of soldiers KIA or killed in action.

Visit a cemetery

Do not let the graves of respected soldiers lie in dirt and debris. Instead, visit the cemetery and help clean and decorate the soldier’s tombstones with flags and flowers. It is a great way to display respect for those who gave up their lives for the freedom we enjoy today.

 

Attend a memorial service

It is part of the Memorial Day custom to host patriotic parades, concerts and ceremonies. Moreover, taking part in such patriotic festive activities can help show the younger ones the importance of the Day and will make existing veterans happy.

Acknowledge a minute of silence

During Memorial Day, everyone in the nation is encouraged to maintain silence for a minute at 3 pm, local time in Memorial Day to remember the sacrifices and acts fallen soldiers.

Keep the history alive and active

Conduct feasts and picnic activities with everyone in the family along with those having a prior history in the forces. Tend to ask the veterans to recite their tales and war stories for the whole family to listen and apprehend the seriousness of the pain and sacrifices soldiers encounter every day on duty. It is because of their blood, tears, and sweat; we enjoy the freedom bestowed on us today.
