Memorial Day…. D-Day…. Women’s Veterans’s Day…. Armed Forces Day… Veterans Day…

First all these are memorializing different groups and have unique history.

For example Memorial Day is for those who died as a service member in war. But even that can lead to disagreements depending on what war/perspective… immediately after Civil war, After reconstruction, After WW1, After WW2, or the many other conflicts around the word over the last century.
