Memorial Day was originally started to celebrate all those, who had fought in the Civil War, but was extended to all veterans of war later on. Nowadays, it's mostly a holiday, where us Americans celebrate being American and talk about how great it is that we can live in the USA and how "[we're] proud to be Americans, where at least [we] know [we're] free." Also, the air force likes to give air shows and anything related to the military will probably put on a show to show off how great America is. Kind of like the Olympics, where we all cheer on our teams only with Memorial Day, we aren't competing against anyone else.
PS I'm afraid I came off as sarcastic, when I was talking about being American, but truth it, I love living in the USA. I love all the people here and how we're so diverse. I like how we're encouraged to think outside of the box and how we're told to chase our dreams, even if that does sound cheesy. I don't think there's any other place I would like to live in more than the USA.
