Memorial Day will be observed on Monday May 29th. In 2000, the U.S. Congress and President Clinton enacted the “National Moment of Remembrance Act,” P.L. 106-579. According to Military.com, “The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. As Moment of Remembrance founder Carmella LaSpada states: ‘It’s a way we can all help put the memorial back in Memorial Day.'”
