Copper State of Mind

copper state of mind

Memorial Day recognizes military service members who have died in the line of duty. There are many ways to remember these men and women:

• Post the American flag.

• Visit cemeteries and memorials.

• Donate to veterans and military support groups.

• Volunteer to support events such as a parade or 5K.

• Observe a minute of silence at 3 p.m., local time.

The National Moment of Remembrance asks Americans wherever they are at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity for one minute.

However you choose to spend the long weekend, be safe.
