Please 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. In the UK it’s known as Remembrance Day. We also honour all the horses, donkeys, and dogs that served alongside and gave their lives. Also the huge numbers that were abandoned when the war ended, living out their remaining lives in appalling conditions because there was no money to repatriate them 😦

  2. Thanks Charles. Everyone involved in the complete madness of World War 1 deserved a medal, not a grave. I was honoured to upgrade the memoir of one: Frederick Knight, who served – a Brit in the Canadian army – in France. He lost his right arm, had Parkinson’s disease in his left and typed his memoir with a head device at the age of 83. Quite a man.! Best wishes.
