Honor Our Veterans

Happy Veterans Day!  Today we honor our military veterans who have fought for our country.  It was U.S. President Woodrow Wilson who first proclaimed Veterans Day, then Armistice Day, on November 11, 1919.  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.”  We thank every man and woman who has stood up for our country and given their lives to protect our land and our people.  How will you be honoring your veterans today?

In addition to it being Veterans Day, it is also a very fascinating day in our calendar that will only come around once a century.  It is November 11, 2011, therefore it’s 11/11/11 – pretty neat!  To honor this momentous occasion, here is an 11 Swag Bucks code that is good until 1:11pm PST.
