Letter: Today is the day
This weekend really bugged me! Memorial Day is May 30. Look at the calendar: It says May 30.
They didn’t change July Fourth, Christmas, Thanksgiving or Labor Day for a three-day weekend. They are all well and good holidays, but Memorial Day is the day to honor our service people who have served for us in all kinds of battles and gave their lives. It is for the veterans who also served and for those who are now dying and serving for us, but this government has the audacity to change the date so you all can have a longer weekend.
Memorial Day should be remembered with the parades we once had and to be proud of our service people who are fighting for us!
