Memorial Day

What do you tell your children about the reasons we observe Memorial Day in the United States?

I'm going to have Iz read the Youth Noise Memorial Day Page when she wakes up today. I will ask her to memorize the following quote:
"When we say 'war is over if we want it,' we mean that if everyone demanded peace instead of another TV set, we'd have peace." (John Lennon)
And I will tell her how lucky I felt when her uncle Chet came back from Bosnia, and then from Afghanistan.
