Happy Veteran’s Day people!
I hope to see those flags out there and all around in Oak Park, Il but these are some ignorant mofos and that’s why I am making sure the vets know someone is thanking them!
The reason it is celebrated today is to mark the signing of the armistice of World War One, a “period of silence lasting two minutes may be held at 11am..” it was ordered by President Ford in 1978 to officially recognize November 11 as the day to recognize America’s veterans on this day.
