Veterans Day

Posted: Wednesday, November 11, 2009 by Travis Cody in

At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, major hostilities in World War 1 ended with the signing of the Armistice.



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.

Thank you to all of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and members of the US Coast Guard for their service and sacrifice. May you all be safe today, and in all the tomorrows of your service. And if you must make the ultimate sacrifice, may you go to your rest with the humble thanks of a grateful nation and her citizens.

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

Thank you for the freedom to engage in the frivolity you'll see if you scroll down.

    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.

    Lest we forget...
