Veteran's Day 2018

Veterans Day 2018 in United States of America is Sunday, November 11 but observed on Monday, November 12.

Veteran's Day began as Armistice Day in 1919 by proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson. The day was to honor our servicemen who served in World War I. In 1938, Congress made it a national holiday. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill so we'd celebrate servicemen for every American War. At last on June 1, 1954 it became Veteran's Day.

Thanks to all of the men and women who served, and continue to serve, to protect the United States of America.

The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. Douglas MacArthur

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived. George S. Patton

I thank God for our servicemen and women. If you are one of these amazing people, thank you for your service!
