Memorial Day... NOT VETERANS DAY!

Let us remember what this holiday is about. As a veteran it is my duty to do so. This may sound harsh, but this holiday IS NOT about honoring veterans and service members. That, my friends is for Veterans Day. National and local news media outlets and even government agencies don't even get this right. Believe me, I've spent the better part of the day correcting them. On this holiday, we remember those that died during their selfless service to our country. 

As a veteran the "thanks for your service" sentiment is nice, don't get me wrong, but instead of telling me that I'd rather you go to your local veterans cemetery tomorrow, take a moment and give thanks to those who gave everything. And please, take the time to correct those that don't know the difference in the two holidays. Even if it means sharing this post.
