This is what Memorial Day is about in its original intent.
Over time, it’s also become a day to remember our lost loved ones. Our fallen service people probably wouldn’t mind sharing the day ~ they were giving people of sacrifice. However, let us not lose track of the original purpose of the day, and the other days in which we honor those who are or have served their country.
So, Memorial Day is the day we honor those who have given their lives in service to their country!
On Veteran’s Day’s we honor those who have served in the military!
Armed Forces Day is our day to honor those who are currently serving in our armed forces.
Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. ~ John 15:13
