VETERANS DAY

VETERANS DAY

Hi Guys,

Sunday, November 11, 2018 is Veterans Day.  Here’s a brief history of Veterans Day:

kids_thank_vetVeterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

When Is Veterans Day?

Veterans Day occurs on November 11 every year in the United States.

So, be grateful and thankful for all the men and women who serve our great country.  Pray for them and their families, too.

Talk to you later,

Jenny
