CAROLINA BEACH - The American Legion Post 129 in Carolina Beach held a Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony on May 30th at the Legion at 1500 Bridge Barrier Rd. Members and their families filled the meeting hall to capacity sharing their memories in honor of military personnel that made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.  
Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Memorial Day is a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. While those who died are also remembered, Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor all those who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime.
Veterans Day is largely intended to thank living veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served - not only those who died - have sacrificed and done their duty.
