We love our military veterans and active duty service members here in the DC Area, and we appreciate the sacrifices that all veterans and their families have made to keep us safe and preserve our democracy.

Veteran’s Day is a very specific holiday set aside to honor all veterans both living and past. Sometimes there is confusion between the purpose and meaning of Veteran’s Day and how it differs from Memorial Day. Here is a short video that covers the differences.
