Veterans, Thank you!

It was the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 when nations the world over celebrated the end of World War I.

Originally, this day was celebrated as “Armistice day” marking  the peace agreement signed in Rethondes, France.  In 1954 Congress designated November 11th as Veteran’s day in order to honor all Veterans.

In 1971 President Nixon declared it a Federal holiday on the second Monday in November which would be the 14th.

This year, the holiday is on a Friday, today. The kids are out of school, mail won’t be delivered and parades will be held throughout the nation. At 11am, consider a thanks, a salute, a moment of silence to honor our veterans then, pick one of the military veteran support charities at the bottom of our “Support our troops” page and give. They have.
