Veterans Day – Honoring All Who Served

veterans dayToday, Tuesday, is Veterans Day. Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans.


It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11.

It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I (major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect). The United States also originally observed Armistice Day; it then evolved into the current Veterans Day holiday in 1954. Wikipedia.

Statement from Governor Christie today:

“Today we take time to honor and pay respect to the men and women who have served in our nation’s Armed Forces. Our veterans have made tremendous contributions and sacrifices while wearing our nation’s uniform. Their desire to serve our country has kept us safe at home and abroad and has helped to protect the values of our nation. Today serves as a reminder to thank our veterans, those currently serving in the military, and their families for their service, bravery and commitment to America.”

  1. To qualify, Veteran’s Day honors all those who served who are living. Memorial honors those who served who have passed away (Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day because of the flowers around soldiers’ graves). It is sad that we pay much more attention to Memorial Day when so many Veterans are living. Also, why two seperate days? Let us have it all on one day.
