Happy Veterans Day

Happy Veterans Day, and thank you to all the vets who have served our country.

An excellent history of the holiday is available on the Veterans Affairs website.  In short, Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day, and was meant to celebrate the end of World War I.  In 1954, Congress changed the name of the holiday to Veterans Day.

I hope you enjoy the holiday.
