Today is Memorial Day and if you are looking for something to do before the afternoon's activities, I came up with a few ideas:
Any National cemetery will be having a memorial ceremony if you live close by one, I highly recommend going to one of these.
Many VFW posts, American Legion posts and DAR chapters do a memorial ceremony, often together, at a local cemetery. Attendees are always welcome.
Many churches are also offering Memorial Day services in honor of the day.
Participate in the National Moment of Remembrance at 3:00pm local time to remember.
Finally, when you raise a glass this evening, keep a Soldier/Sailor/Airman/Marine in your thoughts, if you don't know any, you can browse through Arlington Cemetery and pick one to toast too.
