Nurses, we hope you have a good memorial day, especially all of you who are working today!
What are some of your Memorial Day traditions you do?

- 2May 27, '13 by subeeOH, the irony of the work "Happy" imposed on and endless rows of graves. Memorial Day is one of those bittersweet holidays that we have when people should reflect and be grateful. Saying "Happy Memorial Day" is like saying Happy Yom Kippur.
- 2May 27, '13 by Spidey's mom, ADN, BSN, RN GuideYeah, the addition of the word "happy" to this holiday is causing a brouhaha on FB.
Might want to change that word.
We had a meaningful day. Attended two ceremonies at local cemeteries with my in-laws. Father-in-law was in the Navy on a Destroyer Escort.
Flags were placed on a the graves of servicemen and women who died during service to our country. A short speech, a prayer, and TAPS played.
