Remembrance on Memorial Day

Written By Brandy Hall, MSN, RN


Memorial Day isn’t just another holiday marked by barbecues and beach trips. It’s a solemn occasion to remember and honor the courageous individuals who have served in the military, sacrificing their lives to protect our freedoms. This Memorial Day, instead of merely observing from the sidelines, consider getting involved with a military focus. Here’s why:

Honor the Sacrifice 

The men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country deserve our highest respect and gratitude. By getting involved in Memorial Day activities with a military focus, you can actively honor their bravery and sacrifice.

Support Veterans and Active-Duty Service Members

Veterans and active-duty service members often face unique challenges, from physical injuries to mental health struggles. By volunteering with veterans’ organizations or supporting military families, you can offer substantial support to those who have served and continue to serve our nation.

Raise Awareness

Many people are unaware of the true significance of Memorial Day and the sacrifices made by military personnel. You can get involved and educate others about the importance of the holiday and raise awareness about issues affecting veterans and their families.

Nurture Community Spirit

Memorial Day events bring communities together to pay tribute to fallen soldiers and show support for military personnel. Participate in local ceremonies, parades, or wreath-laying ceremonies, and show a sense of unity and solidarity within your community.

Make a Meaningful Impact

Your involvement, no matter how small, can make a meaningful impact on the lives of veterans, active-duty service members, and their families. Whether it’s volunteering your time, raising awareness, or offering support, your actions can help make a difference.

Never Forget 

Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor the sacrifices of those who have served. By actively participating in military-focused activities, you can ensure that their sacrifices are never forgotten and that their legacy lives on.


Getting involved with a military focus this Memorial Day is about more than just hollow words to those who have served. It’s about actively honoring their sacrifice, supporting their families, raising awareness, and harboring a sense of community spirit. So this Memorial Day, consider how you can make a meaningful impact and show your gratitude to those who have given so much for our country.
