Honor Veterans Day



Today is Veterans Day, and I simply wanted to offer my thank you to all the men and women who have served or are serving our country in the Armed Forces.

This day began with Armistice Day, November 11, 1918, which ended the First World War. Congress formalized Armistice Day as a national holiday in 1938. After World War II and The Korean War, the day was renamed Veterans Day, and it serves as a time to honor all of those who have served or are serving.

Please let it be a day of honor and thanks, not one of special sales deals. It is a day to recognize the commitment, duty, sacrifice, and service of the men and women who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces.

  1. I hail from a military family and your thoughts warm my heart…we recently lost a lovely WW2 Veteran who lived in our apartment building…Margaret was 102 years old (born during a pandemic and left us during COVID-19 of natural causes). There is a small Remembrance Day wreath in our lobby and I was invited to place a picture of my late father there who served during peacekeeping times. Margaret and my Dad often spoke together in the lobby over the years.
    A 21 gun salute is firing as I write these words at a scaled back service in our downtown…
