I have a bit of confusion with the specific US holidays though. What is the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day? in Canada we only observe Remembrance Day, which is Nov 11, just like Veterans Day.

What my uninformed understanding is, is that today, Memorial Day, is specifically intended to remember those who died while serving, and that Veterans Day is the day set aside to to honour all that served. Am I close on this?
Jim, your understanding is correct. Thanks for posting this clarification; it is important.

And both are good excuses for businesses (both bricks and mortar stores and on-line stores) to have sales. Never mind the real reason we have these holidays.

THANK YOU to all the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines I served with. For those who paid the ultimate price, we cannot honor them enough.

Absolutely nothing to do with Escapes, but Alberta now has a Support Our Troops license plate, for those wishing to express their appreciation year-round. I have them on my motor vehicles; however, they are not available for trailers... we must settle for just the tug.


Somewhat similar plates are available in other jurisdictions, such as Ontario and Colorado (a random sampling from a quick search).
