Memorial Day in the United States

Flag etiquette on Memorial Day is unique. At sunrise, flags are to be raised to full staff briskly, then lowered to half staff position where they will remain until noon. At noon, flags are to be raised to full-staff and will be displayed there for the remainder of the holiday. Memorial Day is a great time to show your pride for your country


Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day and commemorates all men and women who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season.

The Grounds of Remembrance in Dublin Veterans Park is a tribute to the men and women of the armed forces who have courageously served our country in times of war and peace. It is a place for reflection and as a place to recognize those who have defended our freedom,

The Grounds of Remembrance is dedicated in the honor of all that have made sacrifices to defend our freedom; from the first 16 Dublin volunteers who joined the 46th Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry in October 1861 to the men and women who are serving today and their families who give up so much to support them.

Dublin Veterans Park is located on approximately one acre of land in Historic Dublin near the Dublin Public Library, along the Indian Run. The map below shows the Park’s location in Historic Dublin
