DFO: Vets Got Their Due On Flight 918

DFO: Back home in CdA after a wonderful week in Denver. I was impressed by lead stewardess on my Southwest Airlines flight No. 918 who reminded everyone as we were landing in Spokane that (Monday) is Memorial Day. She then asked all the vets to punch their call lights in their seats to allow other passengers to know that they'd served their country. The loaded plane then burst into applause. Additionally, the veterans were asked by the stewardess to de-plane first. Wonderful return to our area. The pouring rain after the Denver sunshine didn't diminish that moment in the friendly skies.

Question: How did you observe Memorial Day?
