Military officials, lawmakers, and hundreds of guests gathered at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl Crater for the 64th annual Memorial Day Ceremony.

When should Memorial Day be observed?  On the last Monday of May or on May 30?

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa says that the three-day weekend has become more about celebrating the start of summer instead of remembering those who served our country.

The congresswoman is set to introduce a bill to change Memorial Day to May 30, the date it was before a 1968 bill was passed.
