Veterans Day

Veterans Day

Officially the holiday  is meant as a "celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good" (Dept. of VA) While it is frequently conflated with Memorial Day, the resources here are to honor all veterans. Where as Memorial Day is to remember those veterans that have died during active military service. There are resources listed with Memorial Day with that focus, that may be considered appropriate here.
