Veterans Day 2017: What's open, what's closed

Veterans Day 2017: What's open, what's closed”

I was able to personally thank this beloved Soldier for being a part of liberating the country of my birth.

Let us commemorate 2017 Veterans Day with gratitude. Every day, our committee is working to make sure that the care and support that our veterans earned, fought for, and sacrificed for, are available to them. There aren't Republican soldiers or Democrat soldiers on the battlefield. We didn't say "no" to problems that looked like they were too hard. The original resolution says, "the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises created to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding".

I am obviously an American now, and so proud to be one. For without our veterans, there would be no America.

With Veterans Day coming up soon, I'd like to give some history on the subject.
