Veterans Day – A call to action for the 99 percent

November 11th. Veterans Day. Though many people believe that Memorial Day and Veterans Day are observed for the same reason, there is a subtle yet important distinction between the two. While both holidays honor military personnel, Memorial Day pays tribute to the brave men and women who died while serving our nation in war. Veterans Day, on the other hand, honors the men and women – both living and dead – who have served in the armed forces at any time – during peace or war.
