Veterans Day [1]

Did you know that most Americans confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day? According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, it’s true. Both holidays celebrate the men and women who serve our country, but today, we’re going to find out what makes Veterans Day both unique and important!

To do that, we will start our journey off in the History of Veterans Day section. Here you will learn that Veterans Day was originally a holiday called Armistice Day, which celebrated the end of WWI. Visit this section to learn how the holiday has evolved into the Veterans Day holiday it is today.

Underneath the yellow Buddy Finder search engine, you will find a moving video tribute to those who have served their country, both in the past and in the present. It’s definitely worth a watch! I was quite moved.

Honoring the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – Veterans Day is one of the holidays where the President or someone he designates lies a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in remembrance of the sacrifice of America’s Veterans in foreign wars. It also marks the national observance of the day.

And last, but not least, the Celebrate Famous Veterans section. It is important to remember that celebrities are people too and that some of them have served for our country. Find out which celebrities are also veterans here.

November 11 is an important holiday here in the states: Veteran’s Day. Elsewhere it’s still called Armistice Day as it was first named after WW1. The day is set aside to honor those who have served our country, to remind them that America appreciates what they did.

If you have RealPlayer on your computer you are definitely going to want to go to the Jennifer Love Hewitt link on this page. You can watch the video she filmed about why we should say “Thank You” to the men and women who have served, and are serving for our country. If you don’t have RealPlayer you can go to this section and follow the link to get it or you can read the script of the video. My dad is a veteran so I was very touched by the way she views the veterans in our country.

“I want to show the kids of America that veterans are not just grandparents, uncles and aunts, they’re our classmates, neighbors and friends,” Hewitt said. “Veterans deserve our utmost respect and admiration for the sacrifices they have made for each and every one of us. I want to bring their stories to the attention of those who need to understand that freedom isn’t free.”

Visiting the Veteran’s Day History section on this page will give you all the background information on why we celebrate on November 11th every year. One of the ways you can honor the veterans is to display an American Flag. It isn’t a day off from work, but a day to say thank you to our veterans.

You will also enjoy the Patriotic Fact sheet, which is full of information on Veteran’s Day, as well as ways to celebrate it, and things you can do, as well as learn about the POW/MIA Flag and why it was created. You can also learn about the Burial of the Unknown Soldier and much, much more in this fact sheet.

Let’s honor those who have served to ensure we stay free, say Thank You to Veterans today!
