Veterans Day

Posted: Sunday, November 11, 2007 by Travis Cody in

At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Germans signed the Armistice ending major hostilities of World War I.

Whether you call it Veterans Day, Remembrance Day, or Armistice Day, please turn your thoughts to the men and women of the armed forces who have defended our freedoms.

To the men and women who have served and now serve in the United States Marine Corps, the United States Army, the United States Navy, the United States Air Force, and the United States Coast Guard I send you my thanks and my deepest gratitude.

This I also send to the men and women of all other nations who defend freedom and justice around the world.

For my buddies who gave their lives in service...I miss you. Semper Fi fellas.

    Charles: The time is one of those things that seems to stay with me.

    Bee: I think sometimes people mix up Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Both are equally important, but the meanings are slightly different.

    Sarge: Thank you Sir.

    Akelamalu: I'm glad too.

    Jeff: Agreed on both statements.

    Linda: I think we should remember and honor those who fight for freedom and justice, regardless of the uniform.

    Shelby: Thank you.

    CWM: Yup.
