I've learned that there are those that don't honor Memorial Day or Veterans Day and have their reasons for not. They haven't lost anyone in the military or even know anyone in or a Veteran. So, to them, it's just a day off of work that they get paid for. Even though I'm a Veteran, I never took Veterans Day off during my employment years and Memorial Day was basically just a day off for me. Since being married, my wife changed that for me and.........I'm very happy about that.
