It's easy to think of this weekend as just a three day weekend, but take a moment to remember why we have Monday off. Memorial Day is about remembering those who have gone, and specifically those who given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. DC does a beautiful job with war memorials, but this weekend they've added one just for the next 3 days. The Poppy Memorial will be gone after Monday, so take the time to head to the National Mall this weekend, and remember those who have fallen this Memorial Day.
Beautiful tribute. Pop-Up 'Poppy Memorial' honors fallen troops serving country since WWI https://t.co/MIrdHK0Gcj— Sabrina Conte (@SabConte) May 25, 2018
If you get a chance to visit the National Mall this weekend, be sure to check out the #poppymemorial presented by @usaa on display through Monday. Not only is it beautiful, it’s a striking visual tribute to the more than 645,000 service members that have given their lives in defense of this great nation. #honorthroughaction #nationalpoppyday
