This week we will celebrate Veterans Day. Although originally known as Armistice Day, which commemorated the end of World War I and those who gave their lives in that war, it was later expanded after World War II to celebrate the lives of all who have served in the armed forces of the United States.

It is a day worthy of celebration. How thankful we should be for those who have been willing to put their lives in harm’s way to defend and protect our country and the values we cherish. Thank you, all veterans for your service!

Armistice Day, or Veteran's Day, is one of the most important days of remembrance to honor all the heroes, past and present, who have served America and to defend our country, our citizens, and our freedoms and rights as written in the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

Which makes the current climate of anti-democracy and anti-Constitution and pro-authoritarianism among one political party so difficult to watch. It negates the heroic sacrifice made, and being made, by those who take an oath to protect and defend our country.
