In honor and recognition of all of our fallen service members, the Congress, by a joint resolution approved May 11, 1950, as amended (36 U.S.C. 116), has requested the President issue a proclamation calling on the people of the United States to observe each Memorial Day as a day of prayer for permanent peace and designating a period on that day when the people of the United States might unite in prayer.  The Congress, by Public Law 106-579, has also designated 3:00 p.m. local time on that day as a time for all Americans to observe, in their own way, the National Moment of Remembrance.

President Joe Biden has proclaimed Memorial Day, May 31, 2021, as a day of prayer for permanent peace, and has designated the hour beginning in each locality at 11:00 a.m. of that day as a time when people might unite in prayer and reflection.  Read the presidential proclamation here.
