Memorial Day falls on the last Monday of May (this year, it's May 27) and commemorates all men and women who have died in military service for the United States. Many Americans fly the flag of the United States at half-mast from dawn until noon. Here are 15 patriotic Memorial Day photos that celebrate all our veterans.
