See How Celebrities Paid Tribute This Memorial Day

This weekend while many of us gathered with family and friends for cookouts and visits to the shore or lakes, it was important to remember the true reason for the Memorial Day holiday.

It’s the day that we, as a nation, gather to pay tribute to the service people who died during military service to the United States.

The solemn and important reason for our three day Memorial Day weekend wasn’t lost on many celebrities who took to social media to us, their fans, to take time to honor our fallen soldiers.

There are many ways that you can show your support for the men and women who have and are serving our country. You’ll find great information at USA.gov.

Thankfully I couldn't see my dad's picture while I was singing or I would've lost it. #MemorialDayConcert #PBS #MemDayPBS
