Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918.
Veterans Day is a special time of year for many Americans who, in some way, have formed a connection with a veteran or who are veterans themselves. It is a day that brings about a great sense of pride in our country, a day when we are especially thankful for the service and sacrifice of those who chose, and those who continue to choose, to wear the cloth of the nation.
I had no idea it was Veteran's Day. US holidays seem to slip by without us even noticing. Praise the Lord for those who gave all.ReplyDelete

So thankful for all who have served, some giving the ultimate sacrifice like your Uncle Robert.ReplyDelete
Me too: thankful for all who have served for our freedom.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful tribute to those who have served and those who continue to serve in our Armed Forces, Deb. Thank you so much.ReplyDelete
A lovely tribute for your loved ones. It's nice to have a special day of remembrance, but those who serve deserve our respect every day (and I know they do!).ReplyDelete
My heart is so full of gratitude for those who have served our country! Of course, I am biased because my grandfather, father and husband have all proudly worn a naval uniform. 💙💙ReplyDelete
