On Memorial Day, we remember the fallen and honor the servicemen and women who have given their lives for our country.
President Donald J. Trump proclaimed Memorial Day, May 27, 2019, as a day of prayer for permanent peace, and designated the hour beginning in each locality at 11:00 a.m. of that day as a time when people might unite in prayer.
President Trump also asked all Americans to observe the National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day and requested the people of the United States to display the flag at half-staff from their homes for the customary forenoon period.
"As a free people, we have a sacred duty to remember the courageous warriors who have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that our great country would endure." https://t.co/svqvRAVHld— The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 27, 2019
