  1. Please remember that Memorial Day is the day we honor our service men and women that have Died for our country. Veterans Day is for those living.

    1. Hi Kathy, thanks for your post. Yes that is why several times in my post I have referenced our fallen soldiers. But I also believe that any public holiday that helps us remember our military is an opportunity to thank them whether they are living or thank the families of those who have passed. And of course keep those that have passed in our prayers. I also believe that this shouldn’t be limited to the holidays but anytime we see a soldier or see the family of a soldier a thank you is more than warranted for their sacrifices.
