Veterans Day

Veterans Day

American flagVeterans Day is a day of gratitude to honor ALL American veterans.  It is actually intended to thank all of the living veterans for their dedicated and loyal service to our country.

November 11th of each year is used to ensure veterans know that we all deeply appreciate their sacrifices to keep our country free. ♥

Like many of you, I acknowledge their hard work and sacrifices every day. But, I love that the entire nation comes together to honor them today.

We acknowledge and honor veterans both living and those who are no longer with us on Memorial day.

    So true about Veteran’s Day. My dad is a veteran from Vietnam era and my grandfathers and great-uncles were from WWII, so this day I always feel is truly about that and so thankful for the fact that they gave up a part of their lives to serve to keep us safe.

      Sweet Janine, I feel the exact same way. My Father was in the service for 29 years. My Brother was in Afghanistan ( he returned wounded) xo

    Katherine, thank you for your post. I didn’t realize that Americans celebrated Veterans Day. I, too, wrote a post for this day. In Canada, we call it Remembrance Day. So important to remember those who fought so we could live in peace. What a sacrifice! How much we owe them and their families. Hugs.

Hugs back to you my friend.

    I forgot to mention, I knew about Memorial Day, which I thought was your day to remember. Do you have two days in the year?

    1. Katherines Corner

      Yes, veterans day celebrates the living and memorial day recognizes those veterans that have passed on. xo

    Hi Katherine
    In Australia we had our Remembrance day on Monday – poppies sold and a minutes silence at 11am. In the UK it is Remembrance Sunday. So important the statement ‘Lest we forget’
    Thank you for your blog of Remembrance
