Places to go, things to do on Memorial Day

Polly Anna RochaMay 24, 2019

Monday is Memorial Day, when we pause to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country. It’s also the day many consider the unofficial start of summer. So while many of the Monday’s observations will be solemn, there are celebrations planned, too. Here’s a look:

Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery will have its annual Memorial Day ceremony, with patriotic music, the firing of rifle volleys and taps. 9:30 a.m., 1520 Harry Wurzbach Road. 210-820-3891, cem.va.gov/cems/nchp/ftsamhouston.asp

Grunt Style, the pro-America gear brand now headquartered in San Antonio, will have a remembrance service for fallen soldiers, after which free food and beverages will be served. 7:30-10 p.m. 900 Broadway. gruntstyle.com.
