Keep in mind "Veterans Day" is the celebration of those serving and survivors of military service; while "Memorial day" is a day of remembrance for those who've served that are no longer with us. I celebrated by going to my local Air Force Officer's Club and playing the challenge coin game with the youngsters.
Roger that. I was teaching some classes in Tennessee this year and missed my hometown Veteran's Day parade for the first time in years. But all was good. In my class of about 15 there were three Vets including a 29 year Army lifer.
We had to to make the same point there among the civies. Memorial Day is just for those who gave it all. Many of the younger set see that holiday as only having something to do with "50% Off Sales".
Duly noted on the difference. But Looking over the thread, I don't see where anyone said anything that confused the two holidays.
I mean, I spoke of my Grandad, but thats the Vet I'm most closely related to.
