What’s the Difference Between Veterans Day and Memorial Day
Today is Veterans Day. Or, is it Veteran's Day?
According to the va.com, operated by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, today is Veterans Day, not Veteran's Day. According to the website, there is no apostrophe "s" because the day doesn't belong to the veterans, it's a day honoring the veterans.
So, what's the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day?
Veterans Day is a day set aside to honor all veterans who served, regardless of when or where they served - including in peacetime. It's primarily a day to thank living veterans for their service. It can also be a day to remember those who served, and remember their service.
Memorial Day is for honoring those members of the service who have died - particularly those who died in battle.
