Oftentimes, we spend Memorial Day at the beach or by cooking out at our BBQ...but do we really take anytime to think about the meaning of this holiday? Here are a few ways to celebrate Memorial Day while taking a moment to remember the true meaning of the holiday:
- Visit local Veterans. Take time out of your day to take a trip to the local Veterans hospital. Bake some cookies or have your children or grandchildren make cards or drawings for the Vets. Additionally, you can contact local nursing homes and visit the residents who have been in the service as well. They will love your company on this special day.
- Pay Tribute at A Military Cemetery. Buy a bunch of flowers or a few American flags and visit your local military cemetery or war memorial. Reflecting on the sacrifices these men and women have made for our country will put you in a meditative state of mind this Monday.
- Watch a Parade. Tons of cities put on Memorial Day Parades. If your town isn't participating, you can always watch the national on on television. What a great way to support those walking in the parade and have some fun at the same time!
- Put together something for those overseas. Spend part of your day making cards, writing letters, or making care packages for the men and women spending holidays overseas. They will appreciate your thanks and even the most basic items such as soap, shampoo, and candy!
Don't forget to make your Detroit Airport Parking reservation with Airlines Parking! We appreciate those in military service!
