Across America, citizens are marking Memorial Day with ceremonies and parades honoring those who gave their lives in war, as well as with less solemn events like barbecues with family and friends.

Despite the day’s solemn ethos, Petty Officer 1st Class Brian McNeal told the Associated Press that the fun events should be enjoyed.

I’m in the service so that they can enjoy that,” said McNeal, 39, who is stationed in Suffolk, Virginia, and was in New York for Fleet Week. “They made the sacrifice so everyday citizens don’t have to worry about the evils of the world.”
