In the last paragraph above, you say: "Take an extra moment on Veteran's Day to remember their lives and sacrifices." From what I have been reading on blogs today (Memorial Day 5/30/22), Veteran's Day is for living veterans and Memorial Day is for those who gave their lives. Do you want to check on this with someone who would have knowledge of the difference of these 2 days, and perhaps make a change in your info. above, to accurately reflect that it is Memorial Day that we remember the deceased veterans? Thanks, Jan Ordos Lacey, WA
Thank you so much for this article! I had no idea. Now I feel even more love and respect for our great nation, its peoples, its freedoms as we celebrate the great sacrifice and lives given for our freedom. I pray we can do our part to honor God and those who fought so bravely. Who gave their all for us. God Bless America!
Thank you for your question. Memorial Day honors military who died while in service. Veteran's Day honors all who honorable served (living and deceased).
