Thought for the Day – November 11, 2008

In Remembrance of All Veterans from All Wars

To all the Veterans of all the wars, including my Dad, who was in the Army during the Korean War, I say, “Thank you” for all you’ve done for our country.

November 11, 2008 is Veterans Day in the United States and is coincidentally the 90th anniversary of World War One, which was fought from 1914 to 1918.

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday; “a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day’.”

Congress amended this act on November 8, 1954, replacing “Armistice” with Veterans, and it has been known as Veterans Day since.

May this day not only a day of remembering our Veterans, but also be the day dedicated to the cause of world peace.
