Honor the fallen this Memorial Day and #GoSilent

While it’s great gather on Memorial Day with friends and loved ones, the holiday is actually dedicated to our fallen service members. This Monday, we encourage you all to participate in #GoSilent, organized by Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA):

The #GoSilent campaign allows for a shared, nationwide experience, in which pledges can be made in honor of a fallen service member. The moment of silence will coincide with events in New York, Washington, D.C. and across the country, including IAVA’s participation in a wreath laying before the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. As part of a weeklong awareness campaign leading up to Memorial Day, IAVA and its 425,000 members will lead community-based Memorial Day events from Hawaii to Florida.

The moment of silence will be held at 12:01 pm EDT. You can support the event by taking the pledge to observe the moment of silence. You can also inform your friends about the event on social media platforms using #GoSilent.

Help restore the original meaning of Memorial Day by taking a moment out of your day off to remember those who gave their lives for our country.
