    1. As a non-American I suspect, since you are here, you have access to the Internet:

      “…Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, for honoring military veterans of the United States Armed Forces (who were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable).[1][2] It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which are celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.[3] Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. At the urging of major US veteran organizations, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954…”

      “…Memorial Day (originally known as Decoration Day[1]) is a federal holiday in the United States for mourning the U.S. military personnel who have fought and died while serving in the United States armed forces.[2] It is observed on the last Monday of May; from 1868 to 1970 it was observed on May 30.”

      For most of us, memorial day is to honor those who died.

      Veterans day honors those who are living among us.

      1. And yet it takes only ONE war to end any nation or empire.

        Rot from the inside is what destroyed the Roman, Spanish and Ottoman Empires. Dig a little deeper next time.

  1. Shame that veterans that signed up years ago are now forced to risk their lives to defend this former great country, that is now a shit-show of a circus, half filled with fucking idiots who elect dementia patients, whores, mental defectives and dead people.

    Even worse, those that gave their lives much be turning over in their graves.

    Stupidity has killed this country.

    1. Expanding on your topics, what is truly sad are homeless veterans living on the streets and in poverty, plus the suicide rate. The haphazard care from VA Hospitals and the Covid lockdown rules still in effect veterans confined to nursing facilities are only allowed to see their loved ones one or twice a month for a few supervised minutes. Truly sad and brings families to tears.

      That said, God Bless our Veterans and Thank You for your service! … 🫡 🇺🇸

  2. “…Considering that since it’s founding, the USA has been at war with someone most of its existence, including with itself, I guess a separate day is warranted…”

    Yeah, that’s what Trump would say. That guy was all about ending the wars. What a moron he was.
