Veterans (Armistice) Day – 11/11/21

Veterans Day 2021 | Article | The United States Army

Today is Veterans Day, the day we honor ALL VETERANS. Memorial Day honors service members who died in service to their 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 wartime or peacetime.1

President Ronald Reagan in his 1983 Veteran’s Day Address said the following:

Each time our nation has called upon our citizens to serve, the best have come forward. Words cannot express our gratitude and admiration. But we can and should take the opportunity on this Veterans Day to remember their gift to us. When you see one of our young men and women in uniform on the street or someplace, how about a smiling “hello” and, maybe, a “thank you.”

Veterans know better than anyone else the price of freedom, for they’ve suffered the scars of war. We can offer them no better tribute than to protect what they have won for us. That is our duty. They have never let America down. We will not let them down.
