Ok.👎 California observes the official federal holidays which are New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day as well as days celebrating birthdays or notable people including Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Lincoln’s and Washington’s Birthdays, and Cesar Chavez Day. As in many states, California employers are not required to pay their workers holiday pay when they close for business on official holidays. If an employee works on a holiday, they are paid their usual rate of pay unless it is the employer’s policy to pay extra rates such as time-and-a-half. California law does not require the employer to pay any additional pay if an employee works on the day of a holiday unless it is part of their common practice or if the employee has worked in excess of a 40 hour, 8 hour per day work week. Saturdays and Sunday are also paid at the same rate as hours worked during a weekday. In addition, California law does not require its ...
An increasing number of public American schools with Muslim students are holding Islamic prayers towards Mecca while public American universities continue to build Muslim-only washing facilities. In 2013, Skokie School District 68 in Illinois became the first US school district to celebrate Eid al-Adha, a Muslim high day, as a school holiday, in lieu of Veterans Day. In 2014, Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado became the first High School to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic, replacing "One nation under God," with "One nation under Allah." • In 1996, Bill Clinton became the first US president to hold an Eid al-Fitr dinner at the White House to celebrate the end of Ramadan, the Muslim month-long dawn-to-dusk fast. Eid al-Fitr includes six "Takbirs," the raising of hands and shouting, "Allahu Akbar!" to declare that Allah, the moon god, is the "Greatest." • In 2000, the Republican National Convention became the first US presidential convention to open with a Muslim prayer to .. ...
“We had school on Veterans Day, but we didn't have school on Martin Luther King Jr. Day... I don't get it?”
When Madison found out her Grand County School District would not observe Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day by closing school, she decided to protest. With support from her mom and friends she is taking the morning to read the civil rights leader's speeches to the students. District Superintendent Dr. Stephen Crane says a calendar committee chose to honor Dr. King's day and Veterans Day with special lessons in class.
Once a Year at 11:11 am the Sun Shines Perfectly on this Memorial. At precisely 11:11 a.m. each Veterans Day (Nov. 11), the sun's rays pass through the ellipses of the five Armed Services pillars to form a perfect solar spotlight over a mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States. The Anthem Veterans Memorial, located in Anthem, Arizona, is a monument dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifice of the United States armed forces. The pillar provides a place of honor and reflection for veterans, their family and friends, and those who want to show their respects to those service men and women who have and continue to courageously serve the United States. The memorial was designed by Anthem resident Renee Palmer-Jones. The five marble pillars represent the five branches of the United States military. They are staggered in size (from 17 ft to 6 ft) and ordered in accordance with the Department of Defense prescribed precedence, ranging from the United States Army, the United States Marine Corps, the Unit ...

On Tuesday, November 11, 2014 (also known as Veterans Day), Franchisee Doc Wilhelm and his team at IHOP in Warrenton, Virginia created a "Table of Honor" to remember fallen veterans from each of the four military branches. They also placed a flyer on every table, providing guests with information about the Table: Table of Honor Honored guests, as you entered the dining area, you may have noticed a table centered in our dining area, raised to call your attention to its purpose -- it is reserved to honor our missing loved ones and comrades in arms. Set for five, the empty places represent Americans still missing from each of the five services -- Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard. This Honors Table symbolizes that they are with us here, in spirit. Some of our honored guests today were very young when they were sent into combat; however, all Americans should never forget the brave men and women who answered our nation's call to serve and served the cause of freedom in a special way. The symboli ...

===Long Post=== Veteran writes open letter to Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar = Dear Shri Manohar Parrikar, I write to you today after attending Veterans Day celebrations in Washington DC on November 11, 2014, as a former Indian Army Veteran. I would rather prefer calling ex-servicemen as ‘Veterans’ without giving them a feeling of gender bias or being left out as the term ‘ex’ conveys. Having served the Indian Army, given my youth to the nation and being a third-generation Army officer I am proud to say that the qualities of ‘guts and glory’ run in my blood. With this open letter, I intend highlighting the fact as to how Veterans are respected and revered in the United States of America, which I never witnessed back home in my own country. This, I say with conviction after having a first-hand experience at various events, which reflect the honor meted out to the Veterans of the Armed Forces. The country and its citizens do not give any differential treatment to non-US Veterans like me. Rath ...

I am not speaking for the school board as a whole - these are just my views: How in the world do we as a society, in a country founded on Christian values, allow 1 attention deprived kid to cause such an uproar? A veteran, giving a 45 second non-denominational invocation to begin what by all accounts was a terrific Veterans Day program, somehow offended 1 of the 901 people there. With a prayer??? Really??? And then upon receiving a letter from a fringe group, the folks in charge bend over backwards to please them??? I know there are a ton of cases where rulings have come down in favor of of these *** But when are we as the super majority going to finally have enough? I dont want our school system to have to spend huge $ that we cant afford and that by most legal accounts would be extremely difficult to win. But enough is enough. It is okay for a student to lead the invocation, but not a veteran? It is time for us as the huge majority to fight back. I PRAY this ripple at MCHS becomes a tidal wave that ...

Friends, Please help us honor and remember Veteran military man, John Masson, 91, who survived combat in World War Ii, Korea and Vietnam only to be beaten in brutal savage home invasion on his Northern California house, and dies just days out from Veterans Day. John Masson was brutally bashed by a group of thugs who broke into his North Highlands house in the middle of the night on October 28. Masson, who fought in World War Ii, the Korean War and Vietnam, put up a fight when the thieves demanded his car keys. His stepdaughter and caretaker were tied up and blindfolded as part of the invasion, Masson managed to get the bandits out and they fled without his car. However he was severely beaten in the process. The group also made off with jewelry, prescriptions drugs and some cash. His stepdaughter, Akemi Girion, told CBS 13 that Masson tried to fight off the thugs 'because he's a military man'. On behalf of a grateful nation, we salute you Mr. John Masson for your dedication and service to your country. Rem ...

The Story: Someone at an MCHS Veterans Day assembly did not like the fact that they led with a prayer from a Christian minister (Priest? Preacher? idk) EDIT: Apparently a US Veteran was invited to speak at the assembly. This person contacted the American Humanist Association, and the AHA are calling for actions to be taken within seven days, or they will file a federal lawsuit against the school district. These are the barebones facts. My Opinion: As someone who went to MCHS, the prayers during the Veteran's Day assembly were something that always seemed weird to me. I can remember turning to Claudia Mijares a few times and wondering "Wait...They can do that?" These assemblies have been the same since I was there eight years ago, and they apparently haven't changed since. Honestly, I'm a little surprised that this didn't happen sooner. I have nothing but love for MCHS and every teacher who helped me get through school (Shoutouts Ms. Hidalgo). I realize exactly how lucky I was to go to a small town public ...
Ron McGinty challenged me to post five of my favorite dog pictures. Here they are...they all represent TIME and VALUE. First one was of Gunner. The picture represents the elegance of his composure in the grouse woods. He was nothing less than a professional in the grouse woods and carried himself as such at all times. The second picture is of Gretchen and Gunner on a beautiful October day when we found a mess of woodcock. One of the best days of my life. The third picture is of Baron (father of Gunner and Panzer), Gretchen (mother of Panzer), and Gunner...known around here as the originals. They were the starting point of Aspen Thicket Grouse Dogs. Sadly, there is only one left with us today. They set a very high standard. The fourth picture is of an eight week old Panzer picking me. That exact moment, surprisingly captured on film, was when the decision was made to keep him as the stud to represent Aspen Thicket...when he picked me. The fifth and last picture was taken last week, the morning of Veterans ...

Everyday is Veterans Day in America! I hope that some of you have seen it or watched it last night at 11 pm on NETV. It was called something like "Homecoming, Welcoming Nebraska Veterans". Anyway, it's about Korean War Veterans Freedom Flight to Washington DC that my Dad went on. It was really interesting. But why is the Korean War known as "The Forgotten War"? I always wondered myself until it said that the Korean War was the first war based on points. For example what you did and where you were as a soldier would earn you points. My Dad was stationed right by the Front at all times, so that in return built up enough points to be sent home in a year's time. So that meant that individuals came home in small numbers and not in large units. They practically went under the radar in being seen by the Nation, but not be families and local towns. So they were forgotten but not to those who knew them. That went on into the Vietnam War and I feel even today. But a Soldier could spend many tours in Vietn ...
Story Of Only Soldier To Survive From His Team Will Break Your Heart - Marine Lance Cpl. Travis Williams and the eleven soldiers in his team were on a rescue mission in Barwanah, Iraq in the summer of 2005 when tragedy struck. By complete chance, Lance was told to move to another vehicle before taking off. Only a short time later, a powerful explosion shook the ground. The truck holding his entire team was completely destroyed. Now, he must deal with being the only survivor of his crew everyday. Story Corps honored Lance and his team this Veterans Day in this emotional short animated film.
A lawyer for Bill Cosby has said the comedian will not dignify "decade-old, discredited" allegations of sexual abuse with a response. Attorney John Schmitt said in a statement posted online that the fact the allegations are being repeated does not make them true. Mr Cosby, who has never been criminally charged over the claims, does not intend to "dignify" the allegations with a comment, Mr Schmitt said. - Pop star Rihanna may not be in line for the role of Barack Obama's spokesperson, but she looks quite at home behind the briefing room podium.

How many of you truly missed our Veterans Day deal? I've got hundreds of messages on this saying that we should have waited until payday! Enlisted Nine gave away over 100 shirts for free. Megan also shipped for free to everybody that participated. Bottom line. The deal was if you bought a hoodie you got 2 shirts for free. The item had to be a $24.99 shirt and you could add the difference on any other. It was a $50 coupon that we gave for spending $44.99. I will bring it back for today only if that makes everybody happy. I think we did a great thing for our Veterans and our NATION!

Today is Volkstrauertag (Peoples Mourning Day). This is the German equivalent of Remembrance Sunday or America's Veterans Day. It is traditional for the following song "The Good Comrade", the lament of the German Armed Forces to be played at war memorials across Germany. Ich hatt' einen Kameraden, Einen bessern findst du nit. Die Trommel schlug zum Streite, Er ging an meiner Seite In gleichem Schritt und Tritt. Eine Kugel kam geflogen: Gilt’s mir oder gilt es dir? Ihn hat es weggerissen, Er liegt zu meinen Füßen Als wär's ein Stück von mir. Will mir die Hand noch reichen, Derweil ich eben lad. Kann dir die Hand nicht geben, Bleib du im ew'gen Leben Mein guter Kamerad! In English I once had a comrade, You will find no better. The drum called to battle, He walked at my side, In the same pace and step. A bullet came flying, Is my turn or yours? He was swept away, He lies at my feet, As if it was a part of me. He still reaches out his hand to me, While I am about to reload. I cannot hold onto your hand, ...
Veterans Day or Remembrance Day as it's know in England has passed and many of you observed a moment of silence to honor the memory of those that sacrificed so much so that we would know peace. Memorials and monuments were attended in vast numbers. The crowds that gathered to remember were bonded in collective appreciation for the brave men and women who had paid the ultimate price in their service to their country. People of every creed and race gathered together to remember. Among the crowds there was one common feature, one common symbol – the poppy. During World War One the battlefields were scarred and devastated. It seemed as though nature had given up in the face of such tragedy. The landscape was littered with the bodies of the fallen. It was here in the seemingly barren earth that the poppy flourished. To the soldiers they must have symbolized the blood of their brothers and friends. It may have offered hope to those brave men who wondered if they may ever return to their families; a sign that ...
The Truth About the Recent Wars By Daniel P. Bolger, 10 Nov 2014 AS a senior commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, I lost 80 soldiers. Despite their sacrifices, and those of thousands more, all we have to show for it are two failed wars. This fact eats at me every day, and Veterans Day is tougher than most. As veterans, we tell ourselves it was all worth it. The grim butchery of war hovers out of sight and out of mind, an unwelcome guest at the dignified ceremonies. Instead, we talk of devotion to duty and noble sacrifice. We salute the soldiers at Omaha Beach, the sailors at Leyte Gulf, the airmen in the skies over Berlin and the Marines at the Chosin Reservoir, and we're not wrong to do so. The military thrives on tales of valor. In our volunteer armed forces, such stirring examples keep bringing young men and women through the recruiters' door. As we used to say in the First Cavalry Division, they want to "live the legend." In the military, we love our legends. Here's a legend that's going around these da ...

I have never fought in war, I do not yet deserve to be told Happy Veterans Day. But there is a reason that is dear to my heart of why I became a Marine. I'm seeing all these people write "HAPPY" Veterans Day. To me Veterans Day is a day to reflect on our Americans who have lost a life or lost their own life defending not only our country and people but other countrys and other people. It is a day to be so thankful that we have our Americans who do come back home. There are a few Marines I see every day who have been there done that and I don't feel like "Happy Veterans Day" is the right thing to say to them because I can only imagine that to a veteran it's a day of reflection on the friends they have lost. So maybe if you read this post you'll rethink " Happy Veterans Day" and think more along the lines of THANK YOU to a man or woman who has truly served.

On this Veterans Day/ Armistice Day we remember veterans Louis Allen, Medgar Evers, Clyde Kennard, and many more who survived the war, only to be murdered fighting for democracy on their return to the United States. We also highlight the stories of groups such as the Abraham Lincoln Brigade and the Vietnam Veterans Against the War - stories too often left out of the textbooks.

Happy Veterans Day to my daddy. He dedicated 31 years to the Marine Corps and retired as a E9/master guns. After 30 years of service and several deployments, he saw an opportunity for one last deployment and requested to go. Even after he was told no and to let the younger guys handle it now, he served his 31st year in the marines in Iraq. His whole life was the corps, he was even asked to appear at the White House for a job interview. He is my hero, always has been and always will be! I'm forever my daddys little girl and I'm so proud to be his daughter. So a huge shoutout to Tim Cortes, thank you for keeping us safe and fighting for our freedom. Simper Fidels and Happy Veterans Day america!!!

It was a great honor to speak to our veterans at the Texas Roadhouse - Somerset, KY Veterans Day Celebration on Tuesday.

We are forever indebted to each and every one of these men and women for their service.

Funny thing yesterday, eating my "free" Applebees dinner and watch some "Soldiers" come in with a contract that said he was in the military. I thought, stand tall and act like a true Soldier, be professional and there would be no Questions Asked! Thanks for being a part of the greatest military in the World! SCREW ICIS or whoever wants to get some! Thanks to all the servers and supporters of Veterans Day free meals and observations across the nation. Another thought, I worked yesterday, a girl from the local High School came in to do fingerprints, she stated she had school today, but it was more of "about Veterans Day", so I enjoyed it, made me feel so much better, if we ever get to vote on something that is Important, let it be our children learning history and what our Military does for this country. Also my Grandaughter Abree Beever spent the day with me, because she wanted to be with a veteran and help, even bought lunch, that's awesome!
So yesterday was Veterans Day. I spent all day doing homework. My Girlfriend surprised me by coming home early and suggested we get the kids early from school. We did and then went to Texas Roadhouse for a free meal for me. To my surprise when we came home. There was a cake and the kids got me a gift that I love. Thank you for everything Shana Hybsch Agan
Veterans Day began as Armistice Day. At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month the butchery of the first world war paused. At the time it was considered the end of the war to end all wars. Sadly it has not been so! as members of Veterans For Peace, will honor our brothers and sisters in arms in a different way, by working to increasing public awareness of the costs of war. We will work to restrain our government from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations. We will work to end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons. We will work to seek justice for veterans and victims of war, and to abolish war as an instrument of national policy. This is our mission. As Ulysses S. Grant stated: “The one thing I never want to see again is a military parade.” VFP Chapter 54 will not join in the parade of military form and equipment. Like US Grant, we are tired of the glorification of war. Read More:
On this Veterans Day, we thank all of our military members for their service.

Richard Arvine Overton (born May 11, 1906), is an American centenarian who is currently the oldest verified surviving American World War Ii veteran. He lives in Austin, Texas. Many media sources stated that Overton had been present at the attack on Pearl Harbor, and had participated in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa, such as USA Today, who claimed "Richard Overton survived Pearl Harbor, fought at Iwo Jima and Okinawa..." At the 2013 Veterans Day Ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, President Obama said "He (Overton) was there at Pearl Harbor when the battleships were still smoldering. He was there at Okinawa. He was there at Iwo Jima...", implying that Overton had seen action in those battles. However, Overton's service record shows that he enlisted on September 24, 1942, 9 months after Pearl Harbor was attacked. USA Today also stated that Overton was "a member of the Army's 188th Aviation Engineer Battalion", although no record of such a battalion has been found. A photograph of Over ...

"For 239 years, the men and women of our nation have stepped forward to serve in our armed forces and to defend our freedoms.

Good Morning on behalf of Da-Professor's Lounge I like to wish all the veterans a Happy Veterans Day. You bravery will always be appreciated
Thank you everyone for the "Happy Veterans Day" thank you's. I am so grateful to have served our great nation. It was honor! I at time miss it greatly. Kudos to the men and woman that have served and still serve especially the service members with children. I can't imagine how hard the training and deployments must be for those with kids. I look to the future as we all do and hope we make wise decisions so they don't go through the same hardships that we have endured. Thank you to my friends and family who have supported me especially Morgan Williams who stuck it out with me through it all. I love Veterans Day. It makes me feel so special. And if a time came when our country needed me again, I'm there! Love you all!!!
To everyone who served and still serves Happy Veterans Day! Without those who sacrificed what they did this country isn't what it is! Be thankful for your freedom merica!
FROM THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: Every year, we set aside Veterans Day to honor all the men and women who’ve served our country in uniform. We celebrate veterans from generations past. We welcome a new generation of veterans home from war. And we thank our future veterans, still serving at home and abroad. They are securing our nation through their engagement across the globe. Some are in West Africa, contributing to the global effort to stop the spread of Ebola. Some are in the Middle East, working closely with our coalition partners in the fight against ISIL. And some are in Afghanistan, where next month the United States will responsibly end the longest war in our history. For our troops serving around the world today, and those transitioning out of the military, our obligations are only beginning. Taking care of them, and their families, is a sacred responsibility we must always uphold. Let’s celebrate them by telling their stories. Let’s help those who need it, while supporting their stre ...
I'm a little late to the party. But Happy Veterans Day. I have the highest respect for veterans. I don't care what your political beliefs are. Or what conspiracies you believe or theories you have.

Veterans Day 11/11/14 I went out to diner by myself this evening. I was a little sad because I didn't really want to eat alone. I went to Outback Steak house on US 19 near Tarpon Springs. It was crowded so I sat at the bar to eat my diner. I was wearing my Navy cap in recognition of Veterans Day and was going to see if they had a special for veterans. They did a blooming onion and free diet coke. I struck up a conversation with the couple sitting next to me. The husband was a Korean War veteran. As we were talking a young male child maybe 8 to 10 yrs old came over tapped me on the shoulder and said thank u for your service. I shook his hand and told him thank you for the acknowledgment then I turn to his mom and gave her the thumbs up sign. The couple and I continued to talk and by now we were talking about our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. As I finished my steak and lobster diner the waitress informed me and the couple sitting next to me that our meals plus desert has already been paid for. The lady wh . ...

Arctic air continues to pour southward into the southern Plains behind a sharp cold front on this Veterans Day. Temperatures have dropped more than 40 degrees in southeastern Colorado and western Kansas following the dust storm in the area yesterday afternoon (check our post from yesterday)! Meanwhile, it has turned out to be quite a nice day in the eastern U.S. after a cool start in the morning. On the flip side, winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories remain in effect in parts of the upper Midwest and the upper Great Lakes. The low pressure system responsible for the snow is moving into the Great Lakes. Snow in the upper Midwest will gradually taper off as the low moves away. But more than a foot of new snow is still possible in the upper Great Lakes due to lake-enhanced snowfall. The large dome of arctic air is forecast to spread eastward across the eastern U.S. over the next few days where it will feel much colder by late in the week. Latest from WPC:
As the nation prepares to mark Veterans Day, Democracy Now! has learned that Iraq War veteran Tomas Young has died just weeks before his 35th birthday.

What did you think of the performances? And be sure to send us your pictures below and we'll try to add them to our photo gallery here:
I really enjoyed Veterans Day...my sister and I went to just about all of the restaurants in Lakeland that was offering free food to Veterans...we went to the Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Chili's, Hooters, Applebee's, Carrabba's, Ruby Tuesday, Long Horn, Krispy Kreme...I have so much food I can't even eat it all...lol...Krispy Kreme gave me one donut and a soda...ONE donut...seriously...when I went to the Desert Shield/Desert Storm war in the Middle East I had to stand guard on the perimeter in a FOX HOLE...then during the day I had to help cook the meal so that all of the other soldiers could eat...I think I deserve more than one donut...I think I need to write a letter to the CEO of Krispy Kreme and let him or her know that I need to come pick up the rest of my donuts.

So today I did my Veterans Day ritual with my favorite Veteran, my Daddy. So first we hit up Outback, then to Olive Garden, then to Applebee's, then to Cotton Patch and then to Texas Roadhouse. We were on a mission. I look forward to this date with my Dad every year. It has been our thing for the past 3 years. It great seeing all the Veterans out and how they interact with one another. The conversation always starts with "where did you serve". And the stories follow right behind. Love it!!! Thank you Veteran's for your service!
