(CNN)For those who have lost a loved one in the military, the point of Memorial Day is not barbecues and storewide sales.
It’s remembering the family members, friends and comrades who gave their lives to help protect our country.
This weekend, many on social media have been honoring the fallen by sharing patriotic scenes and other powerful images — many from years past. It’s a reminder that for each person’s sacrifice, there are people who miss them and want to preserve their legacies online.
Here are some of their stories.
