Veteran’s Day is coming up! And in honor of those who died fighting for this country, we have decided to give you a little history on the topic. Yes…it is more than a day off of school!
World War I ended when the fighting was ceased with an armistice, or “temporary cessation of hostilities”, between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Veterans Day serves as the day for us, as Americans, to reflect on Armistice Day, expressing our appreciation for those heroes who died in our defense.
So while you get a couple extra hours of sleep or catch up on the new season of “NewGirl”, don’t forget to take a few moments to think about those who made those privileges possible.
