Veterans Day, observed annually on November 11, is a time to recognize and thank the men and women who have served or are serving in our country's armed forces. In advance of tomorrow's commemoration, let's take a look at the history of Veterans Day, special events around the country, freebies for veterans, and more.
Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.
