A reminder about tomorrow...

 It is MEMORIAL DAY...not Veterans Day.


(From an article at

"As much as we enjoy the extra attention afforded to vets on Veterans Day, this is not the time for that sort of thing. Memorial Day is about honoring the fallen men and women who died in service to their country -- not just anyone. A lot of people will confuse the day, conflate the day or worse, forget the day.

Most veterans will not expect to be thanked for their service, but this especially true on Memorial Day. Instead of smiling and saying whatever it is we say when someone thanks you, vets can take the time to explain the meaning of Memorial Day to them like we're Linus explaining the true meaning of Christmas."
