Yesterday was Veterans Day. Today, we honor our men and women who have served our country so admirably in combat, and in times of peace. My good friend, Eve Rojas (who is a literary critic), posted this wonderful flyer. She asked her friends to pass this along:
Veterans Day coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day, marking the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice ending World War I. (Major hostilities were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with Germans signing the Armistice)
President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed Armistice Day for November 11, 1919. Congress passed a concurrent resolution seven years later on June 4, 1926, requesting that President Calvin Coolidge issue a proclamation to observe November 11th with appropriate ceremonies. A Congressional Act was approved May 13, 1938 that the 11th of November in each year should become a legal holiday. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill into law the expansion to honor ALL vets on May 26, 1954.
I’m happy to oblige and list the restaurants. It’s the least I can do to say THANK YOU for the previous service of our veterans.
