Veterans Day in the USA

Honor Our Heroes Today!

Before Sundown


Dating back to the early 20th century, this honorable holiday is one of the most reverent days in the United States. Veterans Day is especially important now, due to the declining number of living veterans from World War I. Many Americans have grandparents who remember the end of the Great War, but few have great grandparents who were actually old enough to serve in the war.

Although the holiday originated for World War I, it is now celebrated to include all veterans of wars, conflicts and active duty service. In the United States, the armed service community is very tight, and the army, navy, air force, National Guard and reserves of the US have been very important in shaping the country as well as the entire world.

Facts about veterans

 Number: There are nearly 22M living US veterans

When they served: 16.5M are wartime veterans, 5.5M peacetime

      Thanks so much, GP. I did get your Veteran’s Day post published on Facebook, however the reblog didn’t turn up on my site. Still can’t figure out why. Last year I had no problem. Always admire your dedication to keeping us informed with war history and in touch with our heroes. 💛 Christine

        Sorry about that, but I’m basically computer illiterate and could not even venture a guess as to why it gave you trouble! haha – I’m over-the-hill I suppose. We’ll have ask a 10-year old for help.

        GP, me too, over the hill! I do as much as I can with a trial & error technique! Guess, I’ll have to find a 10 year old to help, or venture into YouTube land! Have a peaceful weekend! 💛 Christine
