Don’t Confuse Memorial Day with Veteran’s Day

Memorial Day is our federal holiday remembering the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Originating as Decoration Day, the holiday began after the American Civil War to commemorate both the Union and Confederate soldiers who died. Today, the holiday has been extended to honor all Americans who have died in military service. However, Memorial Day shouldn’t be confused with Veteran’s Day.

Memorial Day remembers veterans who have passed on. Veteran’s Day celebrates the service of all U.S. veterans, living or dead. Our prayers and blessings accompany this special day.
