Did you have a chance to vote? Did you have the option not to cast your vote? Thank a Veteran.
Did you write a letter to the editor and get to express your own opinion? Thank a Veteran.
Did you launch a public protest? Or decide to ignore one? Yep. Time to thank those Veterans.
The freedoms that we sometimes take for granted, are not free. Many people have placed themselves in harms way to protect those freedoms. Some have paid the highest price possible. Don't take your freedom for granted. Thank a Veteran. And remember!
God Bless you, Veterans!
Veterans Day... Armistice Day... Remembrance Day... They mark the Armistice that ended World War I in 1918. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson declared that November 11, 1919 would be a holiday.
"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."
