Many Americans mistakenly believe that Veterans Day is the day Americans set aside to honor American military personal who died in battle or as a result of wounds
sustained from combat. That's not quite true. Memorial Day is the day set aside to honor American's war dead.
Veteran's Day, on the other hand, honor ALL American veterans, both living and dead. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for dedicated and loyal service to their country. November 11 of each year is the day that we insure veterans know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made in their lives to keep our country free.
