In the USA, Veterans Day annually falls on November 11. This day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Veterans are thanked for their services to the United States on Veterans Day.
How do we say thank you to millions of people who have given up years away from friends and family? Pay tribute to people who have risked life and limb so that we can live in the land of the free?
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. – Elmer Davis
