Somehave asked, "isn't Veterans Day in May?"..."Isn't Memorial Day (in May) when we thank Veterans?"...Well, what's the difference between Memorial Day (last Monday in May) and Veterans' Day (every November 11)?
Memorial Day is designated to honor and remember the fallen soldiers who have died in service to our country. Veterans Day is appointed to recognize and honor living Veterans for their service to our country. However, there is natural crossover.
What Can Do Both
While both days have a particular focus, we can acknowledge both on either of these days. It is important to remember the fallen and honor the living Veterans. Their stories are the foundations of this nation, and of our own paths.
This Monday, November 11, 2019, honor these living Veterans for the service and sacrifice. Remember those who fell so that we can live free.
