This Memorial Day will mercifully be much different than last year’s, with COVID-19 restrictions being lifted across the country.
On this day we remember the sacrifices of the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. For more on this American Holiday, see the History Channel’s short history of Memorial Day.
Of note, earlier this month on May 21, 2021, there was the groundbreaking ceremony for the Wall of Remembrance for the Korean War Veterans Memorial.
Visiting a cemetery, donating to an organization that serves veterans, or even educating ourselves about their service are a few of the ways to honor the sacrifices of those who have protected our freedoms.
For those who wish, donating to the many worthy charities that help veterans, active-duty military, and their families is always a good choice. While CRC does not endorse any specific organization, Charity Navigator maintains a list of highly rated, trustworthy military and veterans organizations that provide “a variety of services from lifting troops’ morale to offering financial assistance for food, rent, utilities, and medical expenses.”
