Let us celebrate Veterans day today!! But more importantly, we should remember the men who fought in the trenches and in the air during the First World War. Originally called Armistice day, Veterans day was originally made to honor the end of the 1st World War on Nov. 11, 11:11 A.M. 1918. Later, Congress mandated that the day should honor all veterans of all Wars. God bless the souls of our Doughboys and Marines, and the men fighting overseas as we speak.
