Subject: What’s the Difference Between Veterans Day and Memorial Day?
In reply to: Remembering those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. 's message, "Re: Today we remember and honor the men & women of the U.S. military who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country." on 11:17:09 05/29/17 Mon

People who work in the military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard) have very important jobs; they help defend [protect from harm] people here in the U.S. and in other countries. Some of these men and women are away from their families for many months at a time. Both Veterans Day and Memorial Day are important holidays in the U.S. to honor people who have been members of the military.

Memorial Day, on the last Monday in May, is when we remember and honor men and women who died while serving in the military.

Veterans Day, on November 11, is the day to thank all the men and women who have served in the military during wars and peaceful times.

What can you do? Visit a memorial or send a card to someone in the military. Do you have relatives who are in the military? Ask them to tell you some stories.

Remember to say thanks to a veteran for help keeping us and our country safe.
