I'm not knocking your holiday or disrespecting the military in any way, but I just need something clarified... How is Memorial Day different from Rememberance Day?

Well for one thing it's not also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day, or Veterans Day.

Veterans Day is dedicated to vets who are still alive, Memorial Day is dedicated to veterans who have died. However you can't thank the dead for their service, you can remember them though.

My grandparents called it Decoration Day, because folks would decorate the graves of service members who fell in service to our country.

I took a stroll through Arlington Cemetery on Saturday. It was quite a sight to see every headstone adorned with a little American flag.
