Veterans Day 2009

Today November 11th is the true & official date of the remembrance to our Veterans of the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and US Coast Guard. giving universal recognition to the celebrated ending of World War I fighting at 11 a.m., November 11, 1918 (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month). The day became known as “Armistice Day.” officially receiving its name in America in 1926 through a Congressional resolution.

It became a national holiday 12 years later by similar Congressional action. If the idealistic hope had been realized that World War I was “the War to end all wars,” November 11 might still be called Armistice Day. But only a few years after the holiday was proclaimed, war broke out in Europe. Sixteen and one-half million Americans took part. Four hundred seven thousand of them died in service, more than 292,000 in battle.

Both days where most good Americans will salute you all for your unselfish and gallant service to our country throughout our great history today and on through tomorrow. We as a nation on Veterans Day (and hopefully every day for that matter) remember all the sacrifices of the 25 million plus military veterans  and their families and demonstrate every year our unwavering support and undying gratitude for all their sacrifices and dedicated unwavering service to our faltering but still great country.
