While yesterday was Veterans Day, I came to realize that many people do not know the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day.
There is a big difference and that difference is significant enough that I thought I should post it.
Veterans Day is the day to thank and honor those who served honorably in service to our country…regardless of wartime or peacetime. Deceased veterans are also remembered, but in the context of their service to the nation. In simple terms it is to honor and celebrate the veteran’s service.
Memorial Day honors service members who died in service to their country or as a result of injuries incurred during battle. Memorial Day is where we honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
So…hopefuly that helps everyone understand the difference – because there is a difference.
