Oh, Memorial Day. The time of year to honor the men and women who died so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.

Freedoms like spending Memorial Day gathering with family and friends for a backyard barbecue, a house party or maybe even a trip to a beach.

No matter what your plans, you’ll need some tunes to go along with your holiday festivities.

Below, you’ll find a party playlist that celebrates the United States.

But, we need to remember that Memorial Day is still a holiday that means so much more than a 3-day weekend and time off from work.

If you’re trying to come up with ways to pay tribute to our brave soldiers, consider writing a thank you letter and sending it to A Million Thanks, Soldier’s Angels or many other established organizations just by searching online.

Visit a national cemetery or military museum or make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project and National Military Family Association.
