Want to buy Memorial Day gifts?

On Memorial Day, which occurs on May 31st, we honor service members who have fallen while serving the nation. To celebrate the day, you may go to a memorial service or attend a parade or other public events. Whatever way you choose to celebrate Memorial Day, a celebration would not be complete without the presentation of challenge coins. The custom coins which carry sentimental value would be great gifts to descendants of the fallen soldiers, veterans, or other service members. The coins are given to an individual in order to confirm their membership in a group or organization.

In addition to liquor stores, banks, courts, libraries, USPS, FedEx, the Post Office, schools, and the stock market will be closed.
