Veteran's Day Tribute

Veteran's Day is an annual United States holiday honoring military veterans. A federal holiday, it is observed on November 11. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)  Veteran's Day is day to honor those who have fought and those who are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. They maybe or have served their countries as well as communities. Today is the day to honor those who put their lives on the line for our freedom. Today we should all talk to a Veteran and kindly thank then for their serve.


Thank You, to all the men and women who have served and are currently serving for our country and risking their lives for our freedom!

Great posts. My husband was in Vietnam and lost most of his hearing there when in a firefight the gun he was cooling down blew up. I will pass this along to him. Thank you.
