I also think that so many people just want to honor our patriots and military that they take any opportunity to do so and in doing that they lose sight of the difference.

Plant a flower, plant a tree, raise a flag. N.

 


I would add on Memorial Day take a moment and bow your head in honor of those who gave their all.

Here’s some ground rules for this weekend, Memorial Day Weekend.

Don’t confuse Memorial Day with Veterans Day. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the country’s armed forces, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans and is observed in November.
