What is the Difference Between Veterans Day and Memorial Day?

Veterans Day is the day to tag all your people, posting photos with your brother in uniform or the selfie with your bestie before they deployed. Memorial Day is about remembering and honoring every single man and woman who has died for our freedoms -- men and women who were mommies and daddies, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, patriots, incredible Americans and really, really great friends.

How to Celebrate Veterans Day​

Veterans Day ceremonies often include speeches, wreath-laying ceremonies, parades, and other events to honor veterans. Many businesses and organizations also offer discounts and special promotions to veterans as a token of appreciation for their service.

Veterans Day celebrates the living who served our country. Offer veterans a discount at your business. Call your favorite vet on the phone and thank them for their service. Attend a parade. Celebrate a veteran.

How to Honor Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, Americans often visit cemeteries and memorials to pay tribute to fallen service members. Many communities hold parades, ceremonies, and other events to honor the fallen and recognize their contributions to the nation.

You want to honor and celebrate patriotism and the military this Memorial Day? Then you have to honor the complicated feelings surrounding it. Express your knowledge that this day is about remembrance.

Attend a memorial service at a national cemetery. Run or walk a mile to benefit the nonprofit Krista Anderson started in memory of her husband, and then pledge your mile for wear blue: run to remember.

Talk to your kids about sacrifice, service and what this three-day weekend really means. Observe the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. Monday with a minute of silence.

And then, like Anderson said, live.
