In the proclamation, Governor Walz remembered the purpose of Memorial Day.

Memorial Day serves as a day of remembrance for people to gather for one purpose: to remember our fallen, pay homage to their sacrifice and courage, and recognize the selflessness of military service.  We honor those today who made the ultimate sacrifice for this great nation.

Individuals, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to lower their flags as well.
