This Memorial Day donate to a Top-Rated Veterans & Military charity

   May 22, 2024

Memorial Day is an American holiday that is observed the last Monday of each May.  The holiday honors the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. In 1971 the U.S. government declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.

Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials and holding parades and festive gatherings. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season. In remembrance and honor of this Memorial Day CharityWatch invites donors to check out our Top-Rated Veterans & Military list.
