Memorial Day is a time for Americans across the US to pause and remember its fallen veterans, those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
This year President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump set an American flag at the headstone of Frank Buckles, the last known surviving American World War I veteran.
There is also the decades-old tradition of placing American flags on more than 228,000 gravesites at both Arlington National Cemetery and the Airman’s Home National Cemetery.
Across the country, parades and other events will be held.
People also fly the US flag at half staff, observe moments of silence and donate to charities that help military families.
Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of summer so there will be plenty of barbecues, pool parties and fireworks too.
