The Star Spangled Banner

Memorial Day is a federal holiday designated to honor American service people who died in battle.

The Star Spangled Banner, as sung by Whitney Houston.

From the archives 

1) Are you a veteran? Are there veterans in your family? Do you know anyone who is active military? (We are grateful and want to hear about it.)

2) Memorial Day kicks off the summer season. What's your favorite picnic food? 

3) Let's celebrate the Memorial Day holiday with ice cream. What's your favorite flavor? Cone or cup?

4) This marks the weekend when Americans step up their outdoor activity and do things they may not have been able to do during the winter months. For example, when is the last time you rode a bike?

5) Or went hiking? 

6) Or rode a horse?

7) Or toasted a marshmallow? 

8) As you answer these questions, is there an air conditioner or fan on? 

9) Crazy Sam needs your help: What song or a performer would you like to see featured in a Saturday 9 this summer? You'll begin seeing your suggestions as Saturday 9 themes in mid-June. Thanks!

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend.
