Veteran's Day - Remember to say thank you and welcome home

Hi ya Gorgeous,
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:
Veterans Day is the memorial for 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.
World War I started on 28th of July in 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.
