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.
"We’ll have your backs—just like you had ours." —President Obama. Happy Veterans Day.
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. She posted the image of her trying to fill Josh Earnest's shoes during a recent stop at the White House. The Stay singer is in the nation's capital for a free Veterans Day concert featuring some of the biggest names in music. Rihanna, with her entourage in tow, took a tour of the President's mansion on Monday. "West Wing Posse!!" she wrote along with one of the images posted on her Instagram account. Rihanna was one of several big name acts performing at the Concer ...
Earlier last week, Oakside Elementary students in Ms. Soucy's 3rd grade class made thank you cards for veteran members of Poughkeepsie’s Lutheran Care Center in honor of Veterans Day. The cards were delivered to residents during a special lunch celebration by retired Peekskill music teacher Dave Thomas and his father, Staff Sergeant Peter Thomas, who served in World War Ii. The students also wrote letters about what they learned about Veterans Day and made a poster for residents to display as well.

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, ...
I feel like Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, & Veterans Day are just an excuse to display American pride all year round.

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 ...

John Masson survived three wars, but the 91-year-old Air Force veteran was no match for the brutality of the home invasion robbers who broken into home and beat him beyond recognition. The attack occurred on Oct. 28 at Masson's Northern California home. After a week in intensive, the elderly warrior died of his injuries just a few days shy of Veterans Day. Masson served in World War Ii, the Korean War and in Vietnam. More recently, Masson had devoted his life to caring for his disabled stepdaughter. Read KTLA's story here:

Bruce spoke at the Lincoln Middle School/High School Veterans Day Program on Tuesday (Veterans Day). Following is the content of his speech. Thank you Mr. Cerqua. Good morning! Today, we recognize Veterans Day. As a country, we pause to take time to acknowledge and honor those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Men and women who, throughout our history, have embraced sacrifice of self to serve their country and protect our freedoms. There are over 22 million Americans alive today who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. On behalf of the veterans and their family members present here today, I want to thank your principal, Mr. Cerqua, the staff, and of course the students of Lincoln Middle School/High School for hosting this Veterans Day event. I also wish to thank the choir, directed by Mrs. Bowman and the band, directed by Mr. Miller for their special performances on this occasion.

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.

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.

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:

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 ...

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. We all should be thankful for our veterans. End of story. Don't be a *** So thank you to all of you that have served or are currently serving!

Iraq War veteran and outspoken Iraq War critic Tomas Young has died at the age of 34. Democracy Now! reported his death Monday, the eve of Veterans Day.
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. Young was paralyzed in 2004 shortly after arriving in Iraq. He went on to become one of the nation’s most prominent antiwar U.S. veterans speaking o…
THE CONCERT FOR VALOR: It was a night to remember for hundreds of thousands of concert-goers as they packed the National Mall for The Concert for Valor. Musical performers such as Bruce Springsteen, Rihanna and the Zac Brown Band were just some of the many big acts that took the stage for the free Veterans Day concert. Were you there? 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 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 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.

My daddy is awesome and I cherish every moment we spend together!!! I love him and my momma dearly!!! Was sitting watching tv with him a little while ago and these moments are.priceless!
Today is Veterans Day which I'm sure we all know. On this day it's a tradition for the president to set the wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldiers. Where does the worthless piece of shot spend his day today? CHINA. HE SPENT HIS DAY IN CHINA. I DONT THINK HE HAS DONE IT YET
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!
What a day! Went to VA Monday doctor told me return tomorrow "Tuesday" for blood test. Fasting overnight there 0800 sit until 0900 closed for Veterans Day. Thanks VA! Wasted trip. Back Evansville 1600 ,see Dr Lee. Left shoulder getting locked shoulder. Steroid injection take steroid packet next 6 days. Discontinue therapy for now. Go back to DrLee in a week if not improving. Schedule to be put out to manipulate. Had to do same with right shoulder. This *** But for the bright spot of the day Terry Hoskins went with me to Golden Corral thinking free meal for vets. wrong free meal is 11/17/14. Oh well ate anyway good food enjoyed with a good friend PRICELESS! I enjoyed the company. Terry well eat free next Monday. Guess I'll fast again return to VA in the morning for blood work . I will get the hang of the VA Healthcare system. Will be cold in the morning but hopefully will be a more productive day. God is good . Hope everyone had a good day today & have a better day tomorrow.

Now I'm getting ready to have my free dinner at Olive Garden. I love Veterans ( take nothing for granted. Share a smile or a kind word or two) It was so nice to see so many Veterans being honored and thanked today. Thank You All !!!
Golden Corral changed their date, why would they give Vets a free meal on Nov 17 a week after Veterans Day to add insult to injury the people handling the turning Vets away refused to give Francis the managers name in writing and were rude. Dozens of other Vets were turned away some websites had received the change but many did not so they were listed as one of the places honoring the Vets today. Shame on them
Grandchildren(3) and best friend(J) took me to lunch for Veterans Day. I chose Olive Garden. Their Soup & Salad is my favorite lunch !! They had a special menu for Veterans and my lunch was FREE. Other guest at the same table got a 10% discount on their order !! Of course we added up the discount and put it on the tip line for the excellent service and the genuine respect displayed by the staff. Dam, I felt like I was finally back in AMERICA !! No, I didn't have anything on that showed I was a Veteran and they did not ask for an ID. When I got home, Fedex had dropped of my new VN Veterans Cap. Wore it to the grocery store and got 10% off everything in the cart. Updated my profile picture to share !! It's a great day to be a VETERAN !!

“On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as “the Great War.” Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938.

As many of you know, I had the amazing opportunity to intern for the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington D.C. for a summer. My job was to research and write about Native American Veterans, specifically women. In honor of Veterans Day, below is a list of some people you probably have never heard of, but bravely served this country, their home. Lakota Catholic Sisters, Susie Bordeaux, Ella Clark, Anna Pleets, and Josephine Two Bears were the first recognized Native American Women Veterans. They served as nurses during the Spanish American War in Florida, Georgia, and eventually Cuba. Mother Bridget (Anna B. Pleets) wrote the addresses of the dying soldiers on her apron and wrote to their families after their death. She treasured the apron the rest of her life. Of the hundreds of patients the Sisters cared for, there were only two deaths and both of the deaths were a result of incurable tuberculosis. The women gained fame and honor in Cuba.

On this Veterans Day, I have to thank the members of my family for their sacrifice in allowing us to do each day, what we do. First off, my dad, who took shrapnel in Okinawa and who I miss so much each day. Just to have a day back, what I wouldn't give. To my older brothers, Dave and Denny. Dave in the Air Force and Denny in the Army. My brother in law, Michael Goodson who spent time in Iraq. My nephew, Kyle Reeves in the service right now. My nephew Eric Thomas who recently came home. All sacrificed their time away from home and their families to keep this country safe. God Bless Them all. If I am missing folks, please forgive me. Our family is so big. Happy Veterans Day. Make sure you thank a veteran today.

In honor of Veteran's Day, I stopped by and let Landon speak with a Veteran after school. He severed in Germany on a bomber squadron. He explained to Landon the meaning of "All Gave Some and Some Gave All". He then went inside and brought out one of his hats and gave it to him. He said, "Although this is not the same hat, my best friend gave me a hat also, just before he past away as a result of Agent Orange. Landon shook his hand and thanked him for his service and the hat. That's what Veterans Day means to me. Landon also asked me after school, "Daddy is Mr. Tony Boland in the Air Force or Navy Seals?" In honor of Veterans Day, I let the opportunity pass and told him the Air Force. I also, told him Mr. Tony and his family sacrifice a lot in order for him to help serve our country.

I cannot think of Veterans Day without being deeply grateful for all our family members who not only served, but have also came home to us. Many gave not only years but their lives. Our family has been lucky. Some like Mike and Charles have suffered because of Agent Orange (and other issues we can only guess at), but we were given several years with them. I have a husband and two sons that I am very proud of!
Only fully visible on Veterans Day. How incredible 👌
Just closed on a VA Loan for the surviving spouse of a veteran who died from Agent Orange poisoning while serving in Vietnam. She was crying on the phone with me saying God Bless over and over. What got her most emotional was when she said that her late husband was giving her this gift from the grave. Very touching. And it's Veterans Day!!!
A special Veterans Day thank you to Tampa Sports Academy Co-Owner Jeff Watson.
They served our country - no Veterans should go forgotten. Today in Wewoka there was "no Parade" on Veterans day. We served them lunch of Hot Dogs -Chips a pop. Some told stories - losing buddies in war - wounds - family member lost - being drafted out of High School - 135 degree heat - volunteering to fight - having to fight for VA benefits - PTSD - Agent Orange - WWII - Korean -Viet Nam - Saudi - Irag - Afganistan. I am embarrased - I am Angry - I am Hurt. All I did was gave them a Hot Dog, for serving our Country. No Parade - no dinner/lunch - no thank you for serving our country. A freaking Hot Dog! I am not sure why there was no Veterans Day Parade or lunch. 365 days till Veterans Day 2015. Please let there be a Parade and Dinner honoring the Veterans in 2015! To all the Veterans - I am sorry - and next year - come *** or high water there will be a Parade and Lunch. Thank You for Your Service

If there ever were a day to donate money to veterans and their families (besides every single day) you'd think it would be Veterans Day. Thank you to my Dad, brother, stepdad, and my cousins for instilling in me an appreciation for the military and all that they do.

Here's to the *** at Burger King who decided Veterans Day is the time to say that the kids going to Iraq don't know what war is. According to him he deals with "war" everyday at work. According to his shirt and truck the world of landscaping is much more hardcore than I thought. Also what started this was when the cashier asked if he was a veteran to get the 10% discount. He replied "no" and started his tirade.

Two Cold War-era Russian heels... Pretty typical for the 1980's tag team scene, except these two Russians are Alexis Smirnoff and Paul DeMarco a.k.a. Yuri Gordienko. Upon retirement from the squared circles, both settled in the Northern California area and opened wrestling schools. Between the two of them and contemporaries such as Ric Thompson, Jerry Monti, Buzz Sawyer and Roland Alexander, they trained an entire generation of workers in NorCal. Mr. Smirnoff and Mr. DeMarco are true forefathers of NorCal wrestling. Coincidentally, today is Veterans Day, and long-time fans of pro wrestling in NorCal should recognize these two as undisputed veterans of our business. KNOW WHO PAVED THE ROAD FOR YOU.
One of my favorite quotes in honor of all the Veterans on Veterans Day is "all gave some, some gave all" because it's true!
This morning has not gone as I expected at all. I woke up still a bit groggy from losing an hour of sleep. After participating in National Parent Teacher Day, my youngest son asked if he could go with me to work. I got permission from the school and they said it would be a good experience. In preparation for the day, we were talking last night during dinner. He had decided to wear his blue blazer, khakis, and the bow tie that he wore in the church picture. We discussed that it was also going to be Veterans Day and we might want to try to find a parade. I really did not want to find a parade, they just screw up traffic. My son convinced me to wear my camo hunting jacket with my “I voted” sticker from last week, because I needed to “look Patriotic”. So we scurried out the door with the last bit of deviled eggs from the batch mama had made. Checking down the list to make certain we had not forgotten anything. I stopped in the garage and tossed my shotgun case in a duffle bag. I had agreed t ...
