Grammar Guide: Noun Clauses with That and If

After the Civil War in early American history, women and children from the South decorated their towns with flags to honor the men and boys who died in the war. Today, Memorial Day is still celebrated to honor those who have fought and died in the US military defending their country. Memorial Day is considered a federal holiday in the United States, meaning that public offices and institutions are closed. The following picture depicts a gravestone in Arlington National Cemetery honoring the "unknown soldiers," or any soldier who has served the United States.
