Are there holes in your historic fabric? Buildings and sites whose presence is missed?
Is there a statue in town commemorating soldiers who served? For which wars? How does your community treat that statue today?
Please tell us about the memorials in your community in the comments.
As we remember those who have fought to protect, let us also remember what they fought to preserve.
For more history of Memorial Day, please visit the Library of Congress website.
