With today being Veterans Day, we need to take a moment to pay our respects to all the current and former members of the armed forces. These heroes have taken time away from their families to protect the freedoms we enjoy each and every day.
Veterans Day began as Armistice Day and was a day to honor those who fought in World War I. It was called Armistice Day because it recognized the anniversary of the armistice that brought an end to World War I on November 11, 1918. It was later changed to Veterans Day in 1954 because the armed forces had been through World War II and the conflict in Korea and the government wanted to make sure to honor these heroes as well.
So, spend a minute and be thankful that these heroes have sacrificed so much for all of us.
God Bless and God Bless America.
