May 8, 2008 - PRLog -- Charleston, SC -- Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is a federal holiday that commemorates the fallen heroes who have died in military service to our country. On May 28, Americans will come together and pay their respects at cemeteries, memorials and parades, and a National Moment of Remembrance will take place at 3:00 p.m. www.VetFriends.com - the largest Web site for reuniting U.S. veterans, active military, family and friends – is carrying the spirit and tradition of Memorial Day - offering an online casualty memorial, a nationwide parade directory and a Memorial Day forum free for all to view.

To honor the fallen soldiers visit the online casualty memorial at www.vetfriends.com/memorial. Visitors can search by State, military branch and war to view and submit bios and photos in memory of our fallen soldiers.

A Memorial Day parade/events directory is also available for people to find events in their area to show their support. The directory highlights locations, dates and times of the Holiday's events at www.vetfriends.com/memorialparades/. Coordinators can submit and register their events at this site address as well.

An online Memorial Day Forum dedicated to all U.S. veterans and military personnel, past and present, living and deceased can be viewed at www.vetfriends.com/memorial_day_forum/. The forum reaches out to U.S. veterans and anyone else interested in contributing their thoughts and insights in regards to our U.S. military personnel and Memorial Day. Personal stories, sentiments and words of thanks will be posted throughout May and the summer.

U.S. veteran T. Cromack writes to the forum:
"Whenever I smell the fragrance of lilacs, I think of Memorial Day. It was called Decoration Day when I was in the third grade and we laid lilacs on the graves of veterans. Today, I wear my outdated uniform and march with any veteran's group participating in local parades. God Bless those who are willing to 'Lay down their life for their fellow man.'"
