Veterans Day

Lexy: Today is Veterans Day - a day when we remember all who served in the armed forces to protect our country. 

Do you know the history of Veterans Day? Well, I did a little research on it and I'll sum it up in a few sentences.  During World War 1 in 1918 an armistice between Allied Forces and Germany went into effect on the on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Therefore, November 11 is considered to be the end of the "war to end all wars".  In 1919 President Wilson declared November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day. 

Thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for the graphic

Lola: And let's not forget the four legged soldiers! I have some information on what you can do for them.  Did you know that you can adopt a retired Military War Dog? Here's another site where you can get more information on that. After they retire they need a forever home! And you know what else you can do? You can send them a care package! Barkpost has some information on that.  The dogs must be so happy to get a package with supplies! 

 “While we can never truly repay the debt we owe our heroes, the least we should do for our brave veterans is to ensure that the government takes a proactive approach to delivering the services and benefits they have earned, so they can access the care they need and so richly deserve.” –Kristen Gillibrand

Lexy: You can also send care packages to human soldiers. And let's also remember the veterans that have served in wars passed. The Wounded Warrior Project is a great organization that helps veterans. According to their website, their purpose is to: 
  • To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members.
  • To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
  • To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.

Lola: And we're very proud of the veterans in our family. Mommy's father and two uncles were in the navy, and two of her cousins were Marines.  

Lexy: Let's never forget our Vets.  They're the reason we live in a great country.
