Today is not about those of us who are veterans. It’s about remembering and thanking these men and women:

Remembering my brothers in the submarine service who are on eternal patrol:
USS Thresher (SSN-593) lost with all hands, 129 crewmen and shipyard personnel on April 10, 1963
USS Scorpion (SSN-589) lost with all hands, 99 crewmen on May 22, 1968

In World War II, the submarine force suffered the loss of 52 submarines and 3,506 submariners.

Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

You are correct, sir! Lots of people know that I am a veteran, and when they thank me for my service during Memorial Day Weekend, I will gently say "You're welcome, but let's remember that Memorial Day is to honor those who died during or after their service. Veterans Day is for those of us who are still here."
