Difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day

1

Veterans Day and Memorial Day are similar in that both American holidays honor those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. However, the fundamental difference between the two holidays is that Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service while Veterans Day is set aside to honor and thank U.S. military veterans, living or dead, for their honorable military service during war or peacetime.
