Veteran’s Day 2017

Today we honor those who served our country.

From Wikipedia:

Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans; that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of 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, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.

So today we honor you…those who have served our country and we remember that on this day in 1918, what was then called the Great War came to an end.  We had hoped there would never be another like it, but there was.  I am so thankful to those who served…those who protect our freedoms that we enjoy.

Thank you for your service and your sacrifice for our country!
