This weekend is Memorial Day weekend. What does that mean to you? Do you know the difference between Veteran’s Day, Armed Forces Day, and Memorial Day?
Armed Forces Day is for those who currently serve. Veteran’s Day is for those who can be considered a Veteran. Memorial Day is for those who have GIVEN THEIR LIVES for our country. For most, it is simply 3 days off work. For others, it’s a lot of savings at stores nationwide. But for Me, and my Family, it’s a day to remember our fallen troops that have fought in battles WORLDWIDE. Please remember the reason for your 3 day weekend and don’t confuse the days.
“All Gave some, Some Gave All”
Remembering The fallen,
the men and women who have served our country,
and are no longer with us here on earth….
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the death of these men, rather we thank the Lord that such men lived”
Gen. George S. Patton, Jr.
