Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday in May, was established as a national holiday in 1971 as a way to pay tribute to American military personnel who died in war. Originally known as Decoration Day, this tradition of observing military sacrifice has its roots in the post-Civil War era. One of the earliest Memorial Day gatherings was organized by a group of formerly enslaved people in South Carolina in 1865.

You could also collect donations for organizations that support families of fallen service members.
