50 Memorial Day quotes to honor and remember the fallen

For many people, Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer.

Falling on Monday, May 27 this year, it’s a federal holiday, and much like Labor Day or July 4, banks, credit unions and the post office are closed in observance of the day.

Families often use the three-day weekend as an opportunity to host backyard cookouts or spend the day at the beach to kick off the summer season.

Memorial Day, however, is also a designated day of remembrance for U.S. military personnel and intended to honor those who’ve given their lives in service to their country.

To pay tribute, we’ve gathered a list of Memorial Day quotes to recognize those courageous men and women who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice.

Established in 1868, Memorial Day was initially founded in remembrance of Confederate and Union soldiers who perished in the Civil War. In the decades since, the holiday, which is also referred to as “Decoration Day,” has come to represent all Americans lost in war.

On Memorial Day it is common for friends and families to remember loved ones with flowers, flags and mementos placed at their gravesite.

However you choose to spend Memorial Day this year, take a moment to share one of these inspiring quotes and remember to thank members of the U.S. military for their service.
