Seems like nowadays that no one really seems to care what this day really means!

Kind of a somber day for me.

Don't care, or in most cases don't even know. :'(

I'm reminded of a time I once was in Edinburgh Castle, where they had a military museum with arms and battle flags of famous Scottish regiments, Black Watch, Royal Scots Fusiliers, and of course lists of the fallen.

Then a group of American tourists came in, yakking away, without the slightest understanding of the significance of the place.

A museum guard shut them up with a stern "Shhhh!"

The same sort of thing happens here in the US at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
