Veterans Day

Today is November 11th and people in the United States, are celebrating Veterans Day, which is also known as Armistice Day. Veterans Day is a day to honor and celebrate the veterans, who have defended their country.

But it is also a day of sadness, because there are so many that have lost their lives trying to defend their country. Veterans Day is a legal holiday in USA, both state and federal and was declared a National holiday back in 1938.

According to, there are still 25 million living veterans, so today is not only a time to be proud of the soldiers who have died fighting for their country, but to also be grateful to those who have served and are still living.
