Washington’s Memorial Day returns to Constitution Avenue on Monday, following a two-year absence due to a pandemic.
Many Americans celebrate the day by visiting war relics or visiting cemeteries and placing flowers on graves.
In Washington, motorcyclists have been a regular part of Memorial Day. This year, the biker event is called Rolling to Remember and has expanded its role to include raising awareness about the suicide crisis of veterans.
Rolling to Remember said on its website that its “tour” on Saturday in and around Washington was “to raise awareness of the important issues facing our veterans’ day and demand action for the 82,000 missing service members, as well as to draw attention to the 22 veterans who die by suicide every day.
There are many family gatherings and picnics on Memorial Day as it is widely recognized as the beginning of the summer season in the United States.
