The LAX Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting trucks salute the return of a fallen soldier
In the United States, the last Monday in the month of May is Memorial Day. Originally known as Decoration Day in the years after the Civil War, it is a day for remembering those who have died while serving in the US armed forces. Flags are flown at half-staff until noon, whereupon they are raised to full height.
