Memorial Day and Veterans Day each honor the military, though the two holidays are not the same. Memorial Day, which is celebrated annually on the last Monday in May, honors the brave men and women who lost their lives while serving in the American military. Many communities host memorial ceremonies honoring their fallen soldiers on Memorial Day, ensuring such soldiers’ bravery and sacrifices are never forgotten. While many people now view Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start of summer, the weekend should not be celebrated without also pausing to reflect on and recognize the military personnel who lost their lives in defense of freedom and the American way of life.
We salute our veterans at Courageous Christian Father to thank those men and women who have served to protect our freedoms. Happy Veterans Day and thank you for your service. Check out these facts about Veterans Day and ways to show appreciation to Veterans! #Veterans #VeteransDay
