Veteran’s Day

When we think of the veterans we want to honor on November 11, those who served in the “big” wars come to mind, including the World Wars, Korea, and Vietnam. Since Vietnam, however, the U.S. has been involved in many wars and campaigns. Only during one period from 1984 to 1989 have no Americans fought on foreign lands.
Memorial gestures usually take place on November 11, giving universal recognition to the celebrated ending of World War I when the fighting ended at 11 a.m., November 11, 1918 (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month). The day became known as “Armistice Day.” It then became known as Veterans Day.
Since the holiday is on Saturday this year, Veterans Day will be observed on Friday, Nov. 10, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Here is something you can tell a veteran:
You are very much honored and very much appreciated for all that you have done. Thank you for your courage and for putting your country first. Thank you for protecting our country, for your bravery, and for all that you do to make this country safe.
Wishing you a happy Veteran’s day!
