Do you know the difference?
- Armed Forces Day is for those currently in uniform.
- Veterans Day is for those who once wore the uniform.
- Memorial Day is for those who never made it out of their uniform.
As you celebrate the beginning of summer, and try to put the stress and turmoil of 2020 behind you, take a moment to reflect on your freedoms and to thank those who fought and died to keep those freedoms intact and to protect them for others.
