Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday in May, was set aside as a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle.
Veterans Day is intended to thank and honor all those who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime. 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. Please join us for this National Moment of Remembrance and Honor.
