Thank You Veterans!

Thank You Veterans!
Today, Monday, November 12, 2007 is Veterans Day if you haven’t figured it out already. The North Virginia Patriots would like to thank all of America’s Veterans…. Thank you! The United States Military is the most respectful, honorable, and professional military in the world. The US Military is a place where every member is sworn to protect freedom and the constitution.

Veterans Day is a federal holiday honoring military veterans, a day that gives Americans the opportunity to honor the sacrifice and bravery of all U.S veterans. To us it is tied with our other favorite holidays, Independence Day, and Memorial Day. In 1954, the 83rd Congress, with the urging of the veterans service organizations had the Act of 1938 amended and change to the holiday to Veterans Day. Originally know as Armistice Day due to the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. In November 1918 Germany surrendered and on the “eleventh hour of the eleventh month” it officially ended World War I. In 1938 in legislation that was passed, November 11th was “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day”, or an honor to World War I veterans. After having been through two other major wars, World War II, and the Korean War, in 1954 congress amended the act by striking out “Armistice” and inserting “Veterans”. On June 1st the legislation was approved and November 11th became Veterans Day, a day to honor all American Veterans.

Today we find some people who might forget the sacrifice that was made by so many brave men and women that have served from the Revolutionary War to today, the War On Terror. Dissent from the politicians and the wars that politicians put us in do not and should not translate to dissent for our soldiers that serve our country. Our Veterans have brought us freedom and has helped drive off tyranny and oppression. They have liberated other countries, and fought for liberty. They serve with honor and courage. They have served thousands of miles from their home under conditions that no person should be under, and have prevailed. They are our friends, our family, and our defenders! Thank you for your service!

How to celebrate veterans day!
There are many ways to celebrate veterans day. Some might include bbq and beer (not a bad way) while other go visit memorials and museums that are dedicated to our armed forces, you can even call, email, or visit a vet that you know. We even suggest you donate to charities that are set up to help veterans, these are all good ways to thank a vet.

DYK (Did You Know)- Memorial Day honors service members who died in service to our country or as a result of injuries incurred during battle. Deceased veterans are also remembered on Veterans Day but the day is set aside to thank and honor living veterans who served honorably in the military in both wartime and peacetime.
