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

Hi Guys,

It’s me Bookman, and my friend Jenny asked me to tell you about Veterans Day, so here goes.

talking_bookWell, it’s November and we automatically think about the Thanksgiving Holiday. But do you know what? There is a holiday that happens before Thanksgiving. That holiday is called Veterans Day. Do you know what a veteran is? I sure hope so. But just in case you may not be familiar with that word, I’ll tell  you. A veteran is any man or woman who has served in the military armed forces of this country. So, a veteran can have been in the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Reserves, National Guard-any branch of military service for this great country of ours.

Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11, 2017. In fact November 11th is always the day where we honor and thank all those who have served in this country’s armed forces. Maybe your dad, mom, sister, brother, cousin, aunt, uncle or even grandparents were in the service. If so, be proud of them and thank them. And if your loved one is in the service now, thank them and thank God for them and always pray for them; because they miss you just like you miss them. We want them to come home soon, don’t we?  So, on November 11th say thank you to a veteran and then say a prayer for all of them.
