Happy Veterans Day or Happy Armistice Day! Armistice Day is commemorated every year on November 11 to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at CompiÃ¨gne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morningâ€”the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. The date was declared a national holiday in many allied nations, and coincides with Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, public holidays. I want to recognize and thank all those who have served their country. I am proud to say that my Grandfather fought in Europe in WWI(Army) and my Father(Army) was serving stateside in WWII. I was serving abroad during the Vietnam War(Navy). My Brother-in-Law served in Viet Nam(Marines). My cousins served (Navy & Air Force) and my Nephew served in the Middle East(Navy). My family has a proud heritage of serving this country we live in. Take a moment and thank a Veteran today.
