Memorial DayRemembrances Honor Fallen on Memorial Day
As Memorial Day approaches, thousands will make the pilgrimage to pay honor to loved ones lost to war. Some do not have to travel far. Others will make it an honorable effort to visit many cemeteries that bear the names and are home to our fallen military men and women.

It is valued tradition for those visiting the fallen to leave behind keepsakes and other remembrances as a token of everlasting love and affection for loved ones.  Perhaps the most famous magnet for mementos is the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. It is one of the most visited memorials in the United States. Visitors leave cards, letters, stuffed animals, flowers, war memorabilia and other items. Most are cataloged and preserved for historical and educational purposes.
