Across the United States, people are paying tribute to those who died while serving their country.

The Memorial Day holiday is observed on the last Monday in May.

The three-day weekend also serves as sort of an unofficial start to the summer season. Many people take advantage of the holiday to travel and enjoy the outdoors.
