    From U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs:

    Q. What is the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day?

    A. Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Memorial Day is 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. While those who died are also remembered, Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor ALL those who served honorably in the military – in wartime or peacetime. In fact, 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.

    Reading this article made me remember the significance of the celebration of this holiday. This is not just another day off for many of our fellow Americans. Rather, it is a celebration for all of us to remember, and thank the hundrends of thousands of people who gave their lives in injury and death, so that we could enjoy the freedom and liberties their sacrifices have allowed us to enjoy
    in our great nation.
    Thanks for the great article.

    This article does a good job of showing how the sacrifices of our soldiers (decades ago) positively impacted our country today.

    Sometimes we have a hard time connecting the dots, but there will always be some sort of positive impact when someone lays down his (or her) life for another.

    Please make sure to thank a service member if you have the chance.
