This is the day we set aside to honor all men and women who have severed our country. Put aside any political differences and honor the brave who fought and died for your freedom. :yup:
Sure, and don't forget to mention that many restaurants and other business are honoring vets with free meals to show their appreciation.Amen.....I'll make sure to call my Father in Law today to thank him, and also thank every Vet I see today.
Yeah, all the WWII vets in my family are gone. What stories of the war we all got as kids growing up in the 50's.The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month was set aside for Armistice day. Commemorating the end of WW1.
This became Veterans day in 1954 under the signature of President (General) Eisenhower. Today at the 11th hour wherever you are, a quiet moment of prayer for those who served would be appreciated. Especially those who were of the Greatest Generation that we are losing by the thousands every day. 4 months ago I lost my Uncle Johnny who was 92. He was up to his eyeballs in battle in Europe. He went in D+21 and was wounded twice and each time sent back to fight. That leaves 1 WW2 veteran left in our entire family. He is in a walker and becoming confused. I weep for them and thank God for them.
