It’s Veterans Day

Fly your flag! It’s time to honor our nation’s veterans.

Originally, called Armistace Day, Veterans day is the day to honor those who have served in the military.

It is observed on November 11th of each year because that date is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistace that ended World War I. It was changed to Veterans Day in 1954 to honor the veterans of all wars.

If you’re wondering about my grammar, Veterans Day is officially written without the apostrophe.

Did you now that the Mayflower Compact was signed on November 11, 1620? There was a small group of Americans who lobbied to have the holiday renamed Mayflower Day to honor that occasion.

I hope you fly your flag to honor U.S. veterans! Sonja
