A very big thank you to all who have served in the United States military.
And sorry for posting this a day early. I’m still learning my way around the new wordpress app.
Last year, I wrote about why Veteran’s Day was 11/11.
This year I’d also like to mention that prior to the end of World War I, America was called THESE United States.
The North and South had still not reconciled after the Civil War and each celebrated their veterans with remembrances on separate days.
Upon the death of so many soldiers and to stand behind our soldiers, we stopped referring to ourselves as separate states forming one nation but simply as one nation.
THE United States.
One People behind their men/women in uniform.
And this year, perhaps we can repay their service by demanding our elected officials do their part to return these husbands/wives/brothers/sisters/fathers and mothers to their families and not hold their treatments, medical care, and benefits hostage to bipartisan BS.
It’s time for politicians to stop standing in front of the flag but behind it and the principals upon which so many have sacrificed.
