Remembering Our Veterans and Currently Serving Military Members In Honor Of Veterans Day
November 11 is the “official” Veterans Day commemoration. From the VA official site:
“The Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year on November 11th at Arlington National Cemetery . The ceremony commences precisely at 11:00 a.m. with a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns and continues inside the Memorial Amphitheater with a parade of colors by veterans’ organizations and remarks from dignitaries.”
“The ceremony is intended to honor and thank all who served in the United States Armed Forces.”
Veterans Day is a very important time of remembrance. This year, Monday November 12 is the observed Veterans Day holiday, so today we pause our discussion, advice, and answering questions about VA loans, appraisals, and the like. Today we remember our men and women in uniform who have given so much. Veterans Day is about taking the time to reflect on the troops past and present, and all they have done to protect the country.
To all those who currently serve and to those who have served, we thank you. No amount of words could ever be enough to communicate our feelings on the debt we owe our men and women in uniform. Regardless, it is crucial to make the effort. If you’re a veteran reading this, please know you have our respect and admiration.
If you’ve never served, chances are good you know someone who has–or still does. Today would be a great time to say thanks.
