    Just could not believe the wide-spread confusion (helped mightily by a befuddled media) between Memorial Day and Veterans' Day. Sheesh! Let's get it right, folks!

    I heard a few reporters and anchors who realized their mistake(s) when they were thanking current "veterans" as Memorial Day people.

    If I'm right...
    - Memorial Day (last Monday in May; those who've died in action)
    - Veterans' Day (Nov. 11; those who've served in military; formerly Armistice Day for WWI treaty)
    - Armed Forces Day (May 18th [?]; those who are/have been in military)
    - Independence Day (Jul. 4; when we repelled those s... or started a new country)
    - Patriot Day (Sep. 11; commemorating 9/11 events)
    - Patriots Day (third Mon. in April; commemorating Lexington/Concord battles)
    - Flag Day (Jun. 14; for Old Glory)

    And Memorial Day originated after the Civil War, and was formerly known as Decoration Day.

    I also just found out that Presidents' Day is still officially called Washington's Birthday, at least as a federal holiday.

    Our community center is having their flag disposal urn dedication on Monday. I plan to be there.

    And despite the cloudless sky and hot temps, it was a wonderful ceremony. The pictures below don't do it justice.
