Fun Friday Finds ~ Veterans Day

By Mara Olden ~ Dragonfly Adornments



President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 11, 1919. In proclaiming the holiday, he said "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."

Nice! Thanks for the extra bit of info. It's always good to be reminded that these kinds of holidays aren't just about banks and post offices being closed.
