Memorial Day is just around the corner, and many Michiganders have loved ones who fought for our country.

The four-day weekend is usually a sign that summer is just around the corner. There are a few differences between the holidays and Veterans Day. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, Memorial Day is to remember and honor service members who have died in service.
