It was the 11th hour of the 11th dayof the 11th month in 1918 when hostilities ceased between Germany and the Allied nations. November 11 became Armistice Day that recognized the end of World War I, the “war to end all wars,” and later evolved into Veterans Day.
Veterans Day honors ALL American veterans, both living and dead. Actually, Veterans Day is mainly intended to thank the LIVING veterans for loyal and dedicated service to their country. On this day, November 11,of every year we ensure veterans know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made to keep our country free.
Please remember, if you cherish your rights, thank a veteran, the ones who sacrificed and continue to sacrifice. I am thanking my favorite veteran, my dear husband Bill, who proudly served in the United States Army from 1965-1968and all of you fellow veterans also!
