MEMORIAL DAY is the last Monday of the month. Decoration Day was first observed on May 30, 1868, to commemorate the sacrifices of the soldiers of the Civil War. Flowers and other decorations were to be placed on the graves. The alternative name Memorial Day, began being used in 1882. After World War I, observances began for all those that had died in all American wars. In 1968, congress passed the Uniform Holidays Bill, which moved the dates of three holidays to a specified Monday. These holidays were Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, and Veterans Day. Memorial Day was moved to the last Monday in May. The law took effect in 1971. Today, on Memorial Day, a small American flag is placed on each grave at Arlington National Cemetery and it is customary for the president or vice president to give a speech in honor of the contributions of those that have died to protect our freedoms and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Many people all over America visit cemeteries and memorials. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3 p.m. ET. Another tradition is to fly the flag at quarter staff from dawn until noon, local time.

FLAG DAY (June 14) - The Second Continental Congress adopted the flag of the United States on Jun 14, 1777. Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress in August, 1949. Father's Day is the third Sunday of June. 
There are different accounts on how the celebration of Fathers' Day started, but it is agreed that one of the strongest proponents was Sonora Smart Dodd. After listening to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1909, she felt her father should be honored as well. William Jackson Smart raised six children on his own, after his wife died when all of the children were at a young age. Since the month of June was Mr. Smart’s birth month, the first Father's Day was celebrated in Spokane, on June 19, 1910, in a church service. Discussions began in 1926, and Congress recognized Father's Day in 1956. In 1972, President Richard Nixon made Father's Day the third Sunday in June, as a permanent official holiday.

11th Veterans Day, in honor of those have served this great nation. VETERANS DAY - President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Armistice Day to be November 12, 1919. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour on the 11th day in the 11th month of 1918, with the German signing of The Armistice. Congress passed a resolution in 1926, requesting that November 11, be the appropriate day for ceremonies and an Act in 1938, made the date a legal holiday dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be celebrated. Al King, a Kansas shoe store owner, wanted to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans. A bill was later passed by congress and signed into law in 1954, replacing "Armistice" with "Veterans" Day. Starting in 1971, in accordance with the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, Veterans Day was moved to the fourth Monday of October. In 1978, it was moved back to its original celebration on November 11.
