Dory and I are headed out this afternoon to visit Gramma and celebrate Uncle Harvey's Birthday over the long holiday weekend. Dory has graciously let me take over writing the blog today to write a post I feel strongly about.
In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting the word "Veterans." With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, November 11 became a day to honor AMERICAN VETERANS OF ALL WARS.
If you are one of our regular readers, please forgive this slight diversion from our regular blogging and if you live in the United States we ask that you join us on Sunday November 11, 2007 for just a minute, that is all it takes. Stop what you are doing on this day and remember all those who have served our country in the military, without their sacrifice we would not be who we are individually and as a nation.
