Flag Flying on Memorial Day?

Memorial Day, which was originally called Decoration Day, was first used to honor Union soldiers who died in the United States Civil War. After World War I, it was expanded to commemorate all US men and women who died in military service.

Growing up, I always marched in my small town's Memorial Day parade, flute in hand. Before we left for the parade, we always put up an American flag in front of our home. My grandparents, all of whom had either served or assisted in the war effort during WWII, always did the same.

Do you fly a flag in front of your home at Memorial Day? How else do you remember those who have served the US on this holiday?
