3% of Americans Have No Idea What Memorial Day Is About

Wow...and the word "memorial" is right there in the name 
 
According to a new nationwide survey, 3% of Americans said they have no idea what Memorial Day is about.

 

That 3% couldn't even guess "it's a day of memorials," which would've been an acceptable answer . . . let alone realize that it's a day to honor the troops who died for their country.

 

 
Only 20% said they know "a lot" about Memorial Day.  The other 77% say they know "something" or "a little" about the holiday. 
 
pretty sad.
