The month of May is the perfect time of year to celebrate our military and all the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting us. There are two holidays this month specifically for that purpose. The first is Armed Forces Day, which falls on May 20th and the second is Memorial Day on May 29th.
Armed Forces Day is a day set aside for everyone to honor currently serving military members and thank them for their patriotic duty and service. If you’re looking for a fun event to attend, the American Freedom Museum will be visiting the Brook Hill School campus in Bullard, Texas, on May 13th to celebrate World War II and Korean War veterans.
The second holiday this month is Memorial Day. This is a day set aside to remember our military men and women who paid the ultimate price and died while protecting our freedom. Many people visit local cemeteries and place flags on the graves of fallen soldiers.
In Dallas on May 29th, there will be a Memorial Day concert and fireworks display at Flagpole Hill. The concert will feature the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and will start at 8:15 p.m.
Here at Graff Chevrolet, we are always thankful for the brave men and women who work hard to protect our country every day.
