Veteran's Day will be celebrated across the country on November 11, 2013. This is the day set dedicated to recognizing the service of Americans in all branches of the military.
It was President Woodrow Wilson that proclaimed Veteran's Day on November 11, 1919. Here is a quote that I found pertaining to the dedication, "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."
I hope everyone will take time to acknowledge the sacrifices that these citizens have made for our freedom.
