A big THANK YOU to our heroes this Veterans Day

 

 

Veterans Day_CourageWith today being Vet­er­ans Day, we need to take a moment to pay our respects to all the cur­rent and for­mer mem­bers of the armed forces. These heroes have taken time away from their fam­i­lies to pro­tect the free­doms we enjoy each and every day.

Vet­er­ans Day began as Armistice Day and was a day to honor those who fought in World War I. It was called Armistice Day because it rec­og­nized the anniver­sary of the armistice that brought an end to World War I on Novem­ber 11, 1918. It was later changed to Vet­er­ans Day in 1954 because the armed forces had been through World War II and the con­flict in Korea and the gov­ern­ment wanted to make sure to honor these heroes as well.

So, spend a minute and be thank­ful that these heroes have sac­ri­ficed so much for all of us.

God Bless and God Bless America.
