"Home of the free because of the brave"

Today we honor ALL the soldiers who have served to protect the freedom we hold so dear in the United States.  

Veterans Day, originally known as Armistace Day, was declared by President Woodrow Willson on November 11, 1918 to honor the end of World War I.  

It is now known as Veterans Day in honor of ALL veterans of all wars.  I am proud to say my Dad was a veteran of World War II.  

Our freedom was not easily won and will not be easily kept.  

I offer my sincere thanks to all veterans!

Hi Carol... I remember when this holiday was called Armistice Day... and my Mother never stopped calling it that until the day she died.

Hi Nina Hollander .  I think it was changed when it became a holiday in the U.S.  1954.
