Remembering Our Veterans



Along with today being the auspicious date of 11/11/11 - today is also Veterans Day!

Veterans Day
In 1918, World War I ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The entire world celebrated. An armistice (a truce) was signed declaring the "war to end all wars" was finally over. The next year, on November 11th, the US called the day "Armistice Day" in memory of all the men and women involved in WWI. On Armistice Day, surviving soldiers marched in parades through their home towns. Politicians and veteran officers gave speeches and had ceremonies in thanks for the peace that had been won.
Please take time today to remember all those who have served our country, both living and deceased, for without them we could not benefit from the freedoms that we still enjoy.

In their honor we should pledge to work to preserve those freedoms and to Restore the Republic.

If you haven't already - please consider joining Oathkeepers.
