Veterans Day is meant to honor the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while serving in the military
Both my husband, my father and most of my uncles served in the military, and thankfully they all came home.
Today we honor ALL veterans who who have served. Thank you all for your service!
I wish I knew more of my family’s history, who served in wars. Certainly my father and brother-in-law did. Grateful to them and all the soldiers throughout time who fought and died for the freedoms we have today.
I know a fair amount of history on my Dad’s side – not much past my mother’s generation on her side. I love genealogy but it’s so easy to get caught up in it. I, too, am grateful for all of the soldiers – in all generations.
