It’s Memorial Day, a day when the United States as a nation reflects on the military personnel who’ve lost their lives fighting for their country. What began a Decoration Day after the Civil War to commemorate the soldiers who lost their lives in battle has since been expanded and renamed to address all Americans who have died during military service.

While Memorial Day also typically signifies the beginning of the summer vacation season and a nice long weekend to fire up the grill and enjoy the outdoors, it’s important to remember what the day is truly about and that is honoring the memory of the lost soldiers who fought for America’s freedom.

Several rockers have kept that spirit alive, with Disturbed and Device frontman David Draiman, Megadeth‘s David Ellefson, Nonpoint and Kiss among those paying tribute via Twitter. Otep frontwoman Otep Shamaya has gone the extra step, asking her followers to tweet the names of their lost loved ones so that they will be remembered amongst their followers. A sampling of Memorial Day tweets can be seen below:
