…the armistice was called that ended World War I in 1918.

Since that time, The U.S. has designated that day Veteran’s Day (Remembrance Day in many other countries); a day on which to remember those who have served this country as members of the United States Armed Forces, past and present.

Please take a moment from your busy day to remember the men and women who sacrificed to give you the opportunity to live your life free of oppression and tyranny.

Thank you… soldier, sailor, marine, airman, guardsman! Thank you!

And those of you reading this from other places, honor your veterans also. There’s a good chance that all you have to be thankful for in your own countries is due to a soldier or sailor, etc.

Later…

~Eric
