November 11th marks the day that the major combat in World War I ended. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson named November 11th Armistice Day. In 1938, November 11th became a legal holiday with the name Armistice Day. The first national holiday to celebrate Veterans Day was held in 1947.
"In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Buddy Poppy Program has helped the Veterans of Foreign Wars live up to its motto, “to honor the dead by helping the living.” In August 1922, they adopted the poppy as the official memorial flower of the VFW.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
