We observe Veterans Day on November 11th and it's a somber occasion with no drunken parties.
Veterans Day is observed correctly, but that's also a day to celebrate the Veterans who are still with us. Memorial Day is about those who lost their lives and it is simply shameful how most of the idiots who go out and get drunk on the day mark that day.
Congratulations to America for turning Memorial Day into the number 1 day for DUI's. Those who gave their lives would be proud.
In all honesty, Memorial Day should be moved midweek with the express purpose of ending this ****. Let July 4th be the drunken party. That day is one where celebration is merited.
