7 Inspirational Activities To Commemorate Memorial Day

Memorial Day gives us a special moment each year to recognize the brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. It allows us the opportunity to dedicate time honoring all of the fallen with sincere gratitude and emotions. It’s also a day of reflection on our history that can be shared with family and friends while commemorating their heroic actions.  For ideas on how to salute their contributions, here are 7 activities to pay tribute to those that have touched our hearts. 

7 Memorial Day Activities:

Flag Icon Give Back With Donations
There are many charitable organizations that support the troops. Consider volunteering your time or donating money to these incredibly important causes.
Flag Icon Wave The Flag
To show your patriotism throughout Memorial Day weekend, fly the American flag to symbolize the true spirit and glory of our military.
Flag Icon Watch A Parade
Many local communities have parades that include veterans and marching bands to celebrate our fallen soldiers. Your participation at the event is the perfect way to observe the weekend.
Flag Icon Shop Veterans-Owned
If you plan to do some shopping or eating out this weekend, locate businesses that are owned and operated by military families to show your support.
Flag Icon Send Care Packages
Many service members appreciate getting items from home when they are deployed far from family and friends. Go the extra mile and ship a box filled with fun snacks, games, books, and needed essentials to military bases across the globe.
Flag Icon Chalk Up Some Art
Show off your emblematic pride with chalk art drawings of the American flag, a bald eagle, or other symbols representing the red, white and blue.

Put Pen To Paper
A hand-written note is a touching way to say “Thank You” to those currently serving and to retired personnel. Your personal sentiment can go a long way in showing how much you respect the selfless acts of the men and women in all branches of our military.

We hope you are able to use these ideas or some of your own to create lasting and inspirational memories for years to come.
