Veterans Day

Wow, I know November 11 every year is Veterans day. A day to honor our military both past and present but I honestly had no idea of why or how this day of all days was the chosen date to honor our men and women in uniform.

So today I learned something new. In 1918 on the eleventh day of the eleventh month at the eleventh hour an end was declared for World War One. It was originally known as Armistice Day and it was meant to honor our soldiers returning from war. Somehow throughout the years it transformed into honoring all our military soldiers.

So today I will say a great big Thank You to all our soldiers. Past, Present and Future. Thank you for all you do in serving our country and protecting all those who live in it!
