Thank You to Veterans - Happy Veteran's Day

We owe our Veterans so much Gratitude.
According to Wikipedia:
Veteran's Day is an official US holiday that honors
people who have served in the US Armed Forces, also
known as veterans. It's a federal holiday - so banks, post offices,
and all federal buildings are closed - like courthouses, and the 
Patent and Trademark Office (which is the one that really affects me at work). 
This holiday is observed on November 11. It coincides with other
holidays such as Armitice Dayand Remembrance Day, which are
celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of
the end of World War I (major hostilities of World War I were formally
ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918,
when the Armistice with Germany went into effect). The United States
also originally observed Armistice Day; it then evolved into the
current Veteran's Day holiday in 1954.
Veteran's Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day
celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while
Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women
who died while serving.
Hope you have a wonderful Veteran's Day!  Thanks for stopping by!!
