So why do we make a bigger deal out of Memorial Day than Armed Forces day?
Some would like to think that it’s an MSM plot to slight the military.
Others would like to think its because the military of the past was more worthy of accolades than the military of today.
However, the answer is quite a bit simpler than that. Most Americans get Memorial Day off. So the real celebration is a three day weekend, not the sacrifices of young solidiers of yesteryear.
