Veteran’s Day November 11

Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for you, our veterans.

This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to account for all veterans in all wars.

We celebrate and honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

  1. I didn’t know that, this was originally honored on the “11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month” in 1918. Until I read the article. Thank you for sharing.
    Also, when I “liked” this, the option to “follow” showed. We’ve been following you for years, so that is odd. When you see we are following you (again), know that I don’t know what happened there.

      1. Funny thing, Dennis, a supporter of our blog shared this, and apparently, though I at one point successfully tapped “back” to her blog, that my comment intended for her, wound up here. I don’t know what to make of that. Yet another operator error on my part must have taken place. Technology and are not always friends. However, I found this informative and extremely well written, and am very happy to now be following you as well. : )
