Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start of summer in most places in America and Buffalo is no exception.

However, before we get started with all of our grilling and chilling, it's important that we remember the reason for the season and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for all of the freedoms we enjoy in the United States of America.

What is Memorial Day and Why Do We Celebrate it

According to the United States Government Publishing Office (GPO), which is a Federal agency in the legislative branch, Memorial Day is a Federal Holiday that commemorates the women and men who have died while in military service and is celebrated on the last Monday in May as designated by Federal law (36 U.S.C. 116).

Remember those who gave their all in the service of America, in the service of freedom, in the service of justice. Remember their sacrifice, their valor, and their grace. Remember their smiles; their loves; their laughter; their essential, vibrant, and transcendent humanity. For while we stand amid monuments of stone, we must never forget that each of these markers, for those known and unknown, here at Arlington and far beyond represent a precious life: a son, a daughter, a mother, a spouse, a brother, a sister, a friend, a neighbor.
-Joseph R. Biden, President of the United States
