Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that observes members of the military that gave their lives in combat to protect the greater freedom of the country. It is observed in the last Monday of the month of May, so the actual date tends to fluctuate year to year. It was originally called "Decoration Day", but that did not sit well with many people.
