Today, and every day, we thank those brave men and women that have served, and those currently serving, the United States of America. Today, November 11 is the official holiday to honor all our veterans. Veteran’s Day is from Armistice Day, the end of World War I. The treaty was signed at 11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month. That was November 11, 1918. Yes, this is the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Please call and thank a veteran today. Perhaps take a veteran for coffee or a meal. Visit a hospitalized veteran. Deliver some veteran’s day greeting cards. We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks and our humans, pause to reflect on how much we owe our veterans. Please don’t let Veteran’s Day be a lost day, overshadowed between the shopping frenzies of Halloween and Christmas.
Thanks you veterans.
In Australia we call it Remembrance Day and there were many commemorations yesterday for the centenary.
We had parades. Some businesses offer discounts to veterans. I hope we never forget what our veterans have done for us.
