Listed above is the link to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs web page outlining the history of Veteran's Day. It is interesting reading. It is a good reminder of why there is a Veteran's Day.
Thank you to all the Veterans in the my own family. Your service is appreciated beyond measure. I know my dad and dad-in-law were both drafted during wartime. They served during the Korean Conflict. My grandfather and great uncle served in WWI. I had an uncle who was in the Navy. My husband's family served in WWII and Vietnam. I have second cousins who have served during the current conflicts.
I appreciate all Veteran's and their families for their sacrifices for their time of service.
To all those families who have Veteran Angels - your Veteran Angel has a special place in Heaven and your sacrifice is appreciated beyond any word or phrase I could add.
God bless all of you.
