Memorial Day 2023
Posted on May 4, 2023 by editor
This year, Memorial Day is honored on May 29, 2023. Winthrop is proud to celebrate Memorial Day as a federal United States holiday that honors America’s military members who have lost their lives in service to our country. Always observed on the last Monday of the month of May.
For a lot of Americans, Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer. Many people attend parades, go to the beach, or have barbeques with family and friends- which can be hosted right here at Winthrop. But at its core, Memorial Day is a yearly remembrance for those who have sacrificed their lives in the military service.
Each year, throughout a television broadcast, a Memorial Day Parade is broadcasted as a tribute to our Nation’s fallen heroes. Presented by Boeing returns live to Constitution Avenue this Memorial Day, May 29, at 2:00 PM. Whether you come to watch live, in-person, or on television from around the country, or the world, the story of American sacrifice is shared from Washington DC to Towson, MD to beyond.
Then, stay tuned for the very special Independence Day television companion- Our Sacred Honor: An American Salute. Airing on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and CW stations nationwide, the National Memorial Day Parade and Our Sacred Honor commemorate the shared values of service and sacrifice that have brought this nation together throughout history.
