Memorial Day, 1993. When 13-year-old Kyle Vogel discovers the World War II footlocker belonging to his grandfather, Bud, everyone tells Kyle to put it back. Luckily, he ignores them. Although Bud has never talked about the war, he finds himself striking a deal with his grandson: Kyle can pick any three souvenirs, and Bud will tell him the stories behind each one. Memorial Day not only takes us on a journey into Bud's complicated wartime past, but also into Kyle's wartime future. As the two men share parallel experiences in combat, they come to realize how that magical day on the porch shaped both of their lives. Written by
Kyle Vogel and Lt Tripp have a playful argument over whether corn is a vegetable or a grain but never arrive at an answer. In fact, both are correct. Corn is a vegetable because it is cultivated for its edible parts but it is also a grain because it is the dry seed of a grass species. See more »
The Soldiers in the film are shown wearing a newer version of the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) that was not yet available in 2005. The IR tabs on their shoulders are always shown to be folded under the pocket, but the original ACU had the IR tab itself on the outside of the pocket and had to be covered when not being used.

This is a great family movie, a good movie to watch with the family. It has a lot of great family values. This movie almost made me cry, "Bud" reminded me of my grandpa that passed away a couple year ago. this movie reminded me of the good times me and my grandpa had. The main actors did a great job but the side actors were not very good and it bothered me. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone, if you like war movies or not. This is not really a war movie it is more about the memories and how it changes people. It is about family and friendships. James Cromwell did a very good job. There is some life lessons in this movie, you do not want to take life for granted. Stories live on forever... if you tell them to someone.
