Today, we observe Veterans Day, which was actually Sunday the 11th. Many people believe that Veterans Day is the day to honor military personnel who died in battle or from wounds obtained during combat. However, that day would actually be Memorial Day.
Veterans Day is honoring ALL American veterans, living and dead. It is a chance to say THANK YOU to our living veterans and to show them our appreciation. In 1954, President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day. There are many Veteran Day ceremonies held across the U.S.
Military Missions, Inc, would like to say “THANK YOU” to each and every Veteran and tell them how much their service is appreciated! If you happen to see a Veteran today, take a minute to say those two simple words. You have no idea how much it will mean to them!
