Paying Tribute to the Fallen

Paying Tribute to the Fallen

All across the United States this weekend, people are paying tribute to the fallen military service members  and heroes.

Memorial weekend is the “unofficial” start of the season, and many families will gather for picnics and barbecues to celebrate those who have laid down their lives for the United States of America.

Almost 43 million Americans will be on the go over the holiday weekend. 

Veterans and other military personnel can enjoy free meals and receive other discounts when they show a military identification Monday.

At some businesses, discharge papers, Veterans Administration cards and veterans organization membership cards also can be used to prove service.
