As part of the United States, Puerto Rico acknowledges Memorial Day on the last Monday of May each year - with the date for 2010 being the 31st of May. On this day at 15h00, a national moment of remembrance takes place to commemorate the loss of all US men and women who have died while in military service.
The day is a United States federal holiday, giving all who wish to the opportunity to visit cemetaries and scatter flowers, as well as gather together with loved ones for picnics and sporting events. The US flag flies at half-mast from dawn until noon as an outward symbol of respect.
