November 11, 2010


Today is Veterans' Day!  "Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11. ... It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)" The United States also celebrated Armistice Day on November 11th until Al King, an Emporia, Kansas shoe store owner campaigned to update it to 'All' Veterans Day. With the help of then U.S. Representative Ed Rees and President Dwight Eisenhower, "Congress amended this act on November 8, 1954, replacing 'Armistice' with Veterans, and it has been known as Veterans Day (official spelled without apostrophe) since." - Wikipedia
