(WHNT) — Will the mail run on Memorial Day? The short answer is no.

Just like all other federally-recognized holidays, regular mail from the United States Postal Service (USPS) will not run on the day honoring fallen U.S. military personnel. This year, Memorial Day is recognized on Monday, May 30.

Post offices will also be closed for retail transactions on Memorial Day, according to the USPS.

Despite no regular mail service for residential or business addresses, the USPS says its Priority Mail Express service will continue to operate for deliveries, just as it does “365 days a year.”

Regular mail services will resume Tuesday, May 31.

Memorial Day is recognized every year on the last Monday of May, and commemorates the sacrifice made by those who died while serving in the U.S. armed forces. The day is also considered to be the unofficial start of summer in the United States.

Like all federal holidays, government offices and banks will be closed. According to the Office of Personnel Management, this year’s remaining federal holidays are:
