Memorial Day, which this year takes place today, Monday 25 May, is an annual federal holiday observed in the United States to commemorate the men and women who have died while serving in the US armed forces.
As part of Memorial Day, which became an official federal holiday in 1971, a minute’s silence is held at 15:00 local time throughout the US.
Memorial Day is one of 10 postal holidays in America; you’ll find the full list here.
