Veterans Day

The history of Veterans Day

Formerly known as Armistice Day, Veterans Day in the US is a time for Americans to celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of our veterans. It's also a day to contemplate peace. This would be a good time to honor and thank any veterans you know, both living and deceased, for their service to this country.

Today, I will think about my grandfather who served in the army during WWII, and who just passed away this year. He was a kind, decent, and honorable man.

What does Veterans day mean to you? How will you celebrate it?
