Veteran's Day

Earlier today we reached the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

That is the time each year when we remember the armistice that ended hostilities in WWI, and we spend the full day honoring all veterans of all American wars.

It is very important on this day and all days to remember those veterans who have given our country "the last full measure of devotion," but Veteran's Day should also be an occasion to think about what we are doing for the veterans who have returned to civilian life and are living among us.
