Veterans Day is a U.S. federal holiday, a time to honor and thank those who are serving or have served in the military and are still with us.
Veterans Day is different than Memorial Day, which is a day to reflect and remember those who lost their lives in service to their country.
It was originally called Armistice Day, commemorating the signing of the agreement that ended World War I at 11:00 A.M., November 11, 1918, this federal holiday was changed to Veterans Day in 1954. It became a day to honor all the men and women who have served in the armed forces of the United States. Each year, special ceremonies are held at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
Even though they've long been gone from this life, I'd like to introduce you to some of my kin that served their country.
Brother Arwood Cousin Billy
Cousin Allen His dad Elvin (WW1)
Those Stowe boys liked to be where the action was.
God bless our men and women in the military.
