    WARWICK, RI — Today is Memorial Day, the federal holiday honoring those who died in service to the country.

    The day was originally known as Decoration Day, according to history.com. The commemoration was established following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. The day is separate from Veterans Day, which is meant to honor men and women who served.

     In Warwick, city hall and the school department are closed for the holiday. Trash and recycling are delayed one day.

    Public transit company RIPTA is following holiday routes on Thursday. Check the RIPTA website for schedules. TF Green State Airport is operating, with arrival and departure schedules online. Banks are also closed.
