Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, a federal holiday to honor soldiers observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service. Three years ago, a giant bronze sculpture called "Unconditional Surrender" created by the acclaimed artist, Seward Johnson was displayed at 44th Street and Broadway in Times Square, the exact spot the famous kiss took place. The sculpture was inspired by the famous moment in Times Square on August l4, 1945, the day that WW II ended.
