WASHINGTON, May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks, invites Americans to join in remembering our brave veterans in national parks across the country. On Memorial Day weekend, many sites throughout the National Park System will hold events in memoriam of the greatest sacrifice made by those protecting our nation, while other sites stand as permanent tributes to fallen soldiers year-round.
"Memorial Day is about honoring all who have served," said Neil Mulholland, President and CEO of the National Park Foundation. "National parks guard and honor the legacy of our brave military men and women in places such as battlefields, historical parks, and national monuments."
From the American Revolutionary War to the events of September 11, 2001, the National Park Service and National Park Foundation work to protect the memory of those lost in service to their country. This Memorial Day, everyone can observe this day of reflection in a national park, paying respect to the ultimate devotion and sacrifice made by fellow Americans.
