Veterens Day

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11.

It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I (major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect). The United States also originally observed Armistice Day; it then evolved into the current Veterans Day holiday in 1954. Source: Wikipedia

Thank you to all that served this great nation.

  3. Happy Veteran's Day Sandee and as we call it here in Canada, Remembrance Day. That song picks me up every time I hear it. I even changed the song to fit it for Canada and have my students sing both of the song on Remembrance ( Veteran's Day ). I made sure that my students realize that both the vets in both our countries died for us.
    Have a respectful day Sandee and rest today. See ya.
