Let’s remember that Memorial Day is a day to remember and honor fallen soldiers. I try to avoid saying “Happy Memorial Day” because this is not a celebratory holiday like Independence Day.
Memorial Day is to honor those who died serving the country. Veteran’s Day is a day to honor and thank those who served who are still living. Armed Forces Day is the day to honor and thank active military.
With that reminder out of the way, a few places are offering specials for the holiday:
