Let's clear up a little bit of a misconception right here and now; soon we will celebrate Memorial Day with many of us out enjoying family, friends, a hot dog or two (or three, or four) and thanking a veteran for their service. That last part is what we want to address.
Veterans Day (Monday, November 11, 2019) is the day in which the United States honors all of its military veterans who have served honorably in uniform. Memorial Day (Monday, May 27, 2019) is the day in which we honor those in uniform and their families who have paid the ultimate price of freedom. While flattering, this is why you will often see a confused look on the face of a service member or veteran when you thank them for their service during Memorial Day. "All gave some, some gave all," as the saying goes and this coming Memorial Day let us all pay tribute to those proud few.
May they forever rest in glory and peace.
As is tradition here at MotoMilitant Coffee during military holidays, we have made our Limited Edition Moto Mike and Moto Milly mugs available for purchase. They feature our popular mascots draped in camo and will only be available for a limited time. As an added bonus, 10% of the profits from this mug will go to support veteran causes.
Memorial Day is Monday, May 27, 2019
