Veteran's Day  Nov 11, 2021  Thank a Veteran For Their Service

Today, in the United States, is Veteran’s Day. It’s a day to remember all Veteran’s that have served their country in a time of war. Originally it was known as Armistice Day, which was the day the articles ending World War I were signed, at the 11th hour of the 11 Day of the 11 month.

On June 1, 1954 Congress changed the day and replaced Armistice with Veteran's day in order to include the veteran's from WW11 and the Korean conflict.

As today is a federal holiday, there all government offices will be closed, as will be all schools.  Many restaurants will offer special meals for Veterans with proof of service.  

If you should pass a person today and recognize them as having served, thank them for their service. Even though the draft is still an officially recognized entity for bringing youths over the age of 18 into service, it is not enforced and all current military personnel are volunteers.

This is my favorite day to try and find someone to buy a coffee or meal for as we live fairly close to a military base.  Have a wonderful day!

Hi Ed- It's interesting to learn the history of why we celebrate a certain day. I got to watch via ZOOM my mini-me and her classmates in their Veterans Day program.

A little late to this post but still wanted to offer a comment Ed. Every time I see a military Veteran, I will say "THANK YOU for your service and I mean that sincerely."
