In the United States, we celebrate Veterans Day on November 11th every year. It was first celebrated as Armistice Day on November 11, 1919, a year after the armistice agreement was made between Germany and Allied forces to cease fighting during World War I. The Great War ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The ending of WWI was formalized on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.
Veterans Day (or Armistice Day) was first celebrated on the first anniversary of the end of World War I, which makes 2019 the 100th anniversary of this holiday. In the United States, Veterans Day is a holiday to thank veterans for their services. The focus is on living veterans, as opposed to Memorial Day, which is a day to remember those who gave their lives for our country.
BBA Miami believes if someone has done military service, they earn the title “veteran,” and more, they earn our deep respect and admiration, that they are special no one can ignore. They sacrificed the comforts we enjoy, the list is long of all the things they gave. Our veterans are extraordinary people, they’re loyal, dedicated, true and brave. When terror and invasion were real threats, they showed us they could handle any storm. We owe our freedoms and our very lives to our veterans, who served in uniform, this is something we must teach our youth about our military servicemen and women. That our veterans should be celebrities, they’re exceptional, no other group compares. Today’s youth should understand how we’re grateful for the many things they’ve done; and they’re always in our hearts and in our prayers. We owe our veterans support and friendship; Let no one ever question what they’re worth. These men and women served us and our country,
