Memorial Day weekend … and folks will be on the move … Memorial Day is always on the last Monday of May, this year Monday, May 31st.

Memorial Day started as an event to honor Union soldiers who had died during the American Civil War. And since 1971, Memorial Day holiday has been officially observed on the last Monday in May. Originally, it was known as Decoration Day … It is a Federal Holiday … It is a time for us to remember all men and women who have died in military service for the United States. And, it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season … All non-essential Government offices will be closed Monday…

All of us have been consumed by COVID-19 … but millions will be on the move for a few days as we celebrate Memorial Day … 2021.

Should be a huge crowd at lakes, beaches, mountains and most traveling on our roadways … Pack your patience if you will be traveling…
