Remember the True Meaning of Memorial Day

Many of us are soaking up rays on the beaches of Eastern Carolina, or spending time with our families this Memorial Day weekend, and at that same time many of us forget what this holiday weekend is all about.

Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have fought and died while in the service of their country. Its a day to honor the veterans who've given their lives for the rights of freedom and liberty. To honor them this Memorial Day there are activities you can do. Memorials are hosted around Eastern Carolina many actually on Monday. Or if you're looking for something a little more private, you can visit local cemeteries, and place flowers or American flags at the grave sites of veterans. Its just another way to remember what this day is for.
