Veterans Day in the United States is intended to honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, particularly living veterans. It is marked by parades and church services and in many places the American flag is hung at half mast.
Remembering the end of World War I 100 years ago on this Remembrance Day. May peace be the rule for the rest of our lives. Thanks to all who served in The Great War and all others.
I believe in honoring the sacrifice of human beings in defense of people not a flag or an anthem or anything like that. When people wear the uniform of their country they are standing watch over those who need protecting. You can disagree with me on this but we should value people and freedom for all citizens over objects. Honor a veteran today because they served and sacrificed and to me that is what is most worth celebrating.
Today is Remembrance Day in the United Kingdom, which is the equivalent of Veterans Day in the USA. To my friends in the UK I thank your veterans for their service and sacrifice too.

To all the veterans who have served, I thank you for everything you have done. You have made the world better by putting on a uniform and going to work every day. Thank You!
To those heroes who wore dog tags a uniform and combat boots your service is appreciated today and everyday. Thank you.
