Memorial Day
Montgomery County, MD Monday, May 28, 2018 Memorial Day, also known as Decoration Day, is an official holiday observed in most states of the United States.

All states adopted the change to the last Monday in May except Louisiana. Memorial Day began after the end of World War I when the day was reserved for honoring the dead of all American wars; it eventually included the deceased relatives and friends, military and civilian. Memorial Day is officially marked by the placing of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery. Montgomery County government will observe this holiday. Category: Holidays
