ABOUT VETERAN DAY
“Veterans Day is an annual United States holiday honoring military veterans. A federal holiday, it is observed on November 11. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)…
The U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 11, 1919. In proclaiming the holiday, he said
“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, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”…,” quoting Wikipedia.
– “Veteran’s Day? Try Veteran’s month.”
“Tired of the repeated government bleating of “support our troops” that holds no weight when these men and women lay down life and limb, only to come home and find no support in place for them?
A single day is not enough to honor tell the truth those those who have sacrificed so much in expensive, illegal, and oftentimes unethical wars.
That’s why we’re celebrating Veteran’s month on Ron Paul Channel.”
