Memorial Day and Veteran's Day are not the same thing. Veteran's Day is a day for appreciating those who volunteered to protect the nation in battle. Memorial Day, on the other hand, is a day dedicated to reflecting on and appreciating those who have passed in combat. These people gave their lives to preserve the freedom that every American citizen is able to enjoy, and for that we look back and appreciate their sacrifice.
So this Monday, we celebrate Memorial Day in appreciation and acknowledgment of these brave people who willfully gave their lives to war. Their selflessness will not go unnoticed. Happy Memorial Day
