Today in the USA is Veterans Day, which is a day to honor all those who have served in the armed forces.
Many people in the US confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day which annoys me, so let’s clear this up. Memorial Day honors those who have died serving their country. Veterans Day honors those who are still alive. You can celebrate Veterans Day and say “Happy Veterans Day” but please don’t go around saying “Happy Memorial Day” because that’s like saying “Happy funeral!”
Having said all that I would like to say Happy Veterans Day to Mr. VV who served in the Air Force for eight years.
