On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, an armistice was signed ending the war to end all wars, the Great War, what is now known as World War One. Since then, we have had more wars, and have more veterans of military service. The day was renamed in 1954 here in the US to Veterans Day.
Today is a day to set aside our personal feelings about war, and about the military. It is not about us, but about recognizing those that have selflessly served our country, for that service is surely a sacrifice that they have made.
To all the veterans our there, may the Kindreds bless you and be with you. May you know that your service is not forgotten, but that we all recognize the sacrifices you have made. May you know you are not alone out there. And I, for one, thank you.
