    The first Armistice Day in the U.S. occurred on November 11, 1919,
    when President Woodrow Wilson declared that "to us in America, the
    reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the
    heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude
    for the victory. ... "
    Armistice Day was declared a legal holiday
    by Congress nearly 20 years later. In 1954 the name was changed to
    Veterans Day, following a national campaign to have the day honor all
    veterans, not just those who served in World War I.

    Are you doing anything special for today?



    I will be going to the cemetary today to visit my friend who was killed November 13th, 2007 when an improvised explosive device detonated during dismounted combat operations in Mukhisa, Iraq.

    Freedom isn't free.

    Thank you to everyone who served this great country of ours.

    Even if it was just in the Army, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard.

    The veterans of WWI came back from the trenches carrying the flu. Wiped out half my family. Happy Veterans Day though.

    Nothing special just positive thinking

    May not do anything but it can't hurt

    Know quite a few in combat areas risking their lives
