Today we take a break from our normally scheduled beauty talk to focus on something near to my heart and important.
In the United States, today is Veteran’s Day and it’s our chance to honor and remember the men and women of the military who have sacrificed their lives in service to our country.
It’s very important, when you see someone, usually an old guy, wearing a Vietnam Veteran hat, that you tell the person, “thank you for your service and welcome home”. These boys, when they returned from the war, were met with disdain due to the political climate at the time. It wasn’t fair and it wasn’t right though it happened.
I do this every chance I get and it’s always met with grace and gratitude.
Here’s some details from the Veteran’s Day website:
honoring American soldiers who served and sacrificed their lives in all
the warfare from World War I (WWI). The original name was Armistice Day
which marked the end WWI on the 11th hour, 11th day and 11th month of
1918. An anonymous US soldier was laid to rest at the national cemetery
at Arlington. Similar events took place in Arc de Triomphe, France and
Westminster Abbey in England on the same day. Since 1954 it was renamed
as Veterans Day in The US, declaring it as a formal holiday.
1914 between the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and
Ottoman Empire) and the Allied Forces (Empire of Britain, Russia,
France, USA, Japan, Italy, Serbia, Montenegro, Belgium, Portugal,
Romania, Greece, Hejaz and Siam). This war took toll of 9 million
military personnel and 7 million civilian lives.
