Memorial Day: Honoring All Who Have Served

Many people ask what is Memorial Day? This is the day we remember the men and women who died in military service for our country. They gave the ultimate sacrifice so everyone can enjoy the freedoms we have without threat. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.

The United States Military is made up of five armed service branches: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy.

Dinwiddie County Public Schools honors those brave men and women (including the millions of family members) past and present. Thank you for your service!
