On Memorial Day, we remember and honor the many American soldiers who have fought and died for our country. In fact, did you know that the National Moment of Remembrance Act, passed in 2000, encourages all Americans to pause for a moment of silence at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day?
Also on this day, radio stations across the country will remember and recognize those, and the families of those, who have served this country. There will be dedications and acknowledgments from local radio station personalities and shout-outs from listeners.
Memorial Day is also considered the unofficial kickoff of summer – with local events, outdoor concerts, barbecues and time spent with family and friends. It’s also viewed by some as a time to relax, unwind and remember things to catch up on.
