Happy birthday to the United States Marine Corps. I have a special place in my heart for this fighting force, because my father served in the Marines in World War II.

The Marine Corps began November 10, 1775, so to all who have served or are serving, to quote from the Marine Corps Hymn:

“Here’s health to you and to our corps!”

Happy Birthday!

A Veterans Day Salute

Standard

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.
