There seems to be some confusion about what the 4th of July celebrates judging from the huge number of postings about the troops.
Armed Forces' Day (third saturday in May) is the celebration of the currently serving.
Veteran's Day (November 11) is the celebration of those who previously served.
Memorial Day (last monday in May) is the celebration of those who died in service.
Notice none of those fall on July 4th?
Independence Day is celebrating the day we posted official notice that we weren't going to be British any more. It's got nothing to do with the troops!
While we are happy you remembered us, we would like you to keep in mind why we're out there doing (or did) what we do.
