November 11- Happy Veteran’s Day

HAPPY VETERAN’S DAY

I will be the first to admit I have little to no memory recall on events related to wars.  Being married to a military man, this gets me in trouble a lot!  So I won’t be completely out of the loop, today I looked up the history of Veteran’s Day.  Interesting article- I did know (maybe didn’t remember, but at once time I knew) that Veteran’s Day was because of the armistice in World War I (11th hour, 11th day, 11th month) but I didn’t know that the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier also began on Nov 11 two years later in 1921. 

Next week I may not remember this stuff again, but I will remember that I am thankful for all who serve in the military, thankful for all the sacrifices made by our men and women (and of course their families) to make our country and our world a safer and better place.
