concerned veterans for america

Memorial Day weekend

A significant number of people have thanked me for my service this weekend; I expect a number of folks will, tomorrow, too. Tomorrow, 31 May (the last Monday in May), is the national holiday; today, 30 May, is the traditional Memorial Day. It’s always appropriate to honor those who have given a part of their lives to defend our nation.

Just for the record, Memorial Day is the day we honor those who are not longer with us–they served and have died–perhaps in combat. Armed Forces Day, which is the third Saturday in May, is when we honor those who are presently serving. Veterans Day, 11 November, is when we honor veterans–those who have served, but are still with us.
