    Memorial Day IS NOT Veteran's Day.

    •  True...I always say observing Memorial day (5+ / 0-)

      There is no Happy Memorial Day....many combat vets are in dark places this weekend and the 4th as well.  
      The picnics get to me as bad as the yellow magnets.  Patriotism ?  Hmmmm.   To remember this day, some should visit the VA and talk to some soul who is remembering a buddy left on the battlefield, or he watched in horror die, or she.   No...People need to learn what this day off is about.   About lighting a candle .

      Re: Memorial Day, this says it all.

      Johnson: Would you look at how fast they put the names of all our guys who got killed?
      The Sergeant: That's a World War One memorial.
      Johnson: But the name's are the same.
      The Sergeant: They always are.
