If you’re confused on the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day — today honors military veterans; that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces.
Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.

You protect us. You gave us our freedom and you protect it. You run into the noise and danger of battle knowing there's no guarantee. You salute our nation and our flag. Today we remember those who gave their lives and today we all salute YOU. #VeteransDay #FreedomIsNeverFree #America ????????????????
"America without Her soldiers would be like God without His angels." – Claudia Pemberton Thank you to all who have served and given their lives so that we may have our freedom. And thank you to all of our men and women serving right now this very minute. I am forever grateful for your sacrifice. #veteransday #grateful #blessed #freedom #Godblessamerica And for those who think it's right and ok to burn our American flag…shame on you, I don't think you know what that truly means. #protectourflag
This is @brian_ohler! Over the years of working together we became the closest of friends, and I could go on and on about all of the things he's spectacular at doing but the best thing about him is his heart. He truly has a heart for service, for people & for our country. I've never met anyone as selfless as he is. This pic is from when he was on his way to report to be deployed in 2011. It was my first time experiencing someone close to me leaving & having the very real thought, 'they might not make it back.' You can even see the tear in my eye. Goodness, I was so sad. But after serving as Army Military Police for 12 years, 2 tours in Iraq, 1 tour in Afghanistan, 3 commendation medals, a combat action badge & 3 Purple Hearts later, he was honorably discharged in 2013. And now he just ran & won State Representative of Connecticut! I'm so proud of you Brian. Thank you so much for your service, for your heart & for being my friend. You're the greatest. ?????????? #veteransday
It's Veterans Day today, and I want to take the time and express my absolute gratitude to the service men and women that protect this flag of mine. Protect this beautiful country, continuously put their lives on the line for me to enjoy mine. There will never be enough praise to truly capture how grateful we should all be to have people out there just like you and I volunteering to protect the freedoms we continuously get to enjoy. They are the true testaments to what I think is one of the greatest quotes of our time. "Ask not what your county can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." I find it incredibly important that every person owns up to their own responsibilities to their communities. Be the change you want to see be the strength and courage you want to have. Be the love that you so desperately deserve. The more you give, the more you shall receive. Atleast id like to think so. Happy Veterans Day. ????????
The first people affected by our country's poor foreign policy mistakes are our military brothers and sisters. Then, they come back and have to face poor treatment with our domestic policy with poor healthcare, mental trauma, and moral trauma and it's hard to find a decent paying job among other problems (especially if they are a person of color – more than likely those on the frontlines are). We have to put pressure on our government to put action behind their words and take care of all of our veterans. #FBF to working with the @bootcampaign to support our veterans. Check this awesome organization out and see how you can get involved. It's #UptoUs now. We need each other now more than ever. ????????????? #VeteransDay
