For the majority of us, Memorial Day is synonymous with things like swimming pools, barbecues, road trips and, most of all, a day off from the nine-to-five grind. It's the unofficial start of summer.

But we mustn't forget about the real reason why we celebrate Memorial Day – to pay tribute to the men and women who have fallen while serving our country. What's more, Memorial Day reminds us to pause and tip our hats to the fine, dedicated folks who voluntarily serve to protect these United States each and every day.

We at Autoblog are taking the day off to enjoy some pre-summer fun, but never fear, the hopper is chocked full of automotive content to get you through until we're back in full swing tomorrow.

Finally, we couldn't resist the opportunity to include our gallery of the 2010 Tribute Chevrolet Camaro, so if you've never seen it before, scroll through the gallery below to get your fix. And from all of us at Autoblog, have a safe, happy and relaxing Memorial Day.

      God bless the U.S.A. and all of our allies. If not for our troops, we'd be in unimaginable danger. We cannot drop guard at no times.

      Actually, Memorial Day is a depoliticized and whitewashed holiday originally celebrated by former slaves after the Civil War: http://www.pslweb.org/liberationnews/news/revolutionary-memorial-day-hijacked.html
