Veterans Day Vs Memorial Day Explained

2 min read

There’s some confusion when it comes to Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Veterans Day is a day to thank and honor everyone who served in the military. Memorial Day is a day to remember and honor military service members who’ve died during their service to this country.

The history of Veterans Day comes from Armistice Day, which was declared November 11, 1918, the end of World War I. It was primarily set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but after World War II and Korea Congress changed Armistice Day to Veterans Day.

Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day, a day set aside to remember all Americans lost in the Civil War. On the first Dedication Day in 1868, families decorated the graves of 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. After World War I, Decoration Day was renamed Memorial Day and extended to all service members who died in all American wars.

Both of these holidays recognize service members for their patriotism, willingness to serve, and sacrifice for this country.
