Memorial Day & Veteran's Day Are Not he Same...

The Way I See It:
I do believe that it's time for the American people, especially America's so-called highly educated learned politicians. Memorial Day is a day set aside to honor those men and women who gave the ultimate full measure in service of their country. Men and women, who along with the Founders of this Republic pledged to give their lives, their treasures and their sacred honor in order for this Free Nation to persevere above all nations as the beacon of freedom and liberty. And, the Memorial Day Observance should be a somber celebration of the sacrifice endured by the fallen and the families of the fallen.
That being said, Veteran's Day is a day we thank those who served, fought, sacrificed family time, sacrificed college education and those who did come home, many of them wounded physically and mentally. Veteran's Day is not for the fallen, but for the men and women who came home after suffering through the ravages of war. The Veterans who still fight the same battles, see the same atrocities and witnessed what cannot be unseen. In our minds, war is as vivid as if it was yesterday, not 5, 10 or even 50 years ago. So many photo-ops of the President and politicians around this great nation continue to make the feeble attempt to somehow honor Veterans with the same gestures as they honor the fallen. We living Veterans have honored the fallen by taking up the task, raising the flag with them in mind, and we did it without hesitation, without running and hiding, without looking for ways to shirk what every citizen's systemic duty should have been. "Courage is not the absence of fear, it's the conquest of it." We living Veteran's didn't do it for the money, for the power or for accolades and parades. We served our nation with honor in every battlefield in every corner of the world under the American Flag a world wide known symbol of Liberty and Freedom. We did not falter and we did not fall, we came home. Many of us came home from an unpopular war, and we were treated terribly. It's those Veteran's from Vietnam that vowed "Never again will a returning warrior be treated so badly by those they served". It should be noted, that still, to this day there are returning Veteran's who are homeless, who suffer tremendously from PTSD and are forgotten. So, America, let's not "forget" the fallen, let us keep their memory of sacrifice on Memorial Day. By the same token let's "remember" the ones who came home, on the day set aside, Veteran's Day. Those of us who survived gave the same pledge as those who have fallen, we too "Pledged our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor."
General George Washington once wrote: "The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation."
A good quote and thought to remember by Americans, every day, not just one day a year.
That's the way I see it...
