Veterans Day, 100 Years of the Armistice, Thank You All

The 11th of November every year we set aside to give due honors. To those few who have taken the oath and stepped up to fight for this nation, we give this day.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the observance when an armistice between Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

When a nation asked they said, “Send me.”

Men and women of every background, every faith, and every walk of life picked up a rifle to defend their homes, communities, and nation. Many take this for granted, some spurn their sacrifices.

 

We owe them our lives, liberty, and most sacred honor.

To All Whom Have Honorably Served This Nation, Thank You.
