Veterans Day vs. Memorial Day

The following text was copied from the US Navy website

First, you may be asking yourself, “What’s the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day?” That’s a great question that many people may be wondering. In short, the difference is this:  we celebrate Veterans Day to thank and honor all the men and women who served honorably in the military, in times of war and in times of peace.

Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday in May, is a day for remembering the members of our military who died in the service to our country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds received in battle.

In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, “Veterans Day is largely intended to thank living veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served—not only those who died—have sacrificed and done their duty.”

From one veteran to another, Thank You  for your service.
