Veterans Day

Today, November 11, is the day set aside originally as Armistice Day, to commemorate the Armistice signed to end World War One. That peace was very short lived and along came World War Two. Shortly after, Armistice Day was changed to Veterans Day, a day set aside now to commemorate Veterans of all conflicts.

Since WW2 the world has seen several "little" wars, as some refer to them. Korea, Viet Nam, Northern Ireland, Granada, Desert Storm, the War on Terror and the current main battle of that war, Iraq.

Even though they may not be held in the same esteem as the "greater" wars, all have one thing in common, men and women, who gave of themselves when their countries called and endured unthinkable horrors and at times, total boredom. Some came back whole. Some came back broken. Some did not come back at all. But, all gave of themselves.

To all my brothers and sisters that stood and performed their duty to promote and protect the world’s freedom, I say Thank You and I hope you all receive the thanks and honor we are all due.

 

I invite all to click the link below and read the story of how this song from Canada came to be. Once you have read it, view the video and listen to the song, it’s one of the most touching songs I’ve ever heard thanking Veterans.
