On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 the guns fell silent. November 11 was originally Armistice Day to celebrate an end to the first truly global war. The war fundamentally altered the old world while ushering in the new. Old empires were in ruins and new powers poised on the world stage. An imperfect peace would descend and lead the world down a dark path. Young men and women would again be called upon to rid the world of evil. The "war to end all wars" did not live up to its name, but it did give us a day on which to formally say Thank You to our veterans for standing a post and preserving the freedoms that we take for granted. Citizen soldiers taken from the ranks of the public have fought and died to secure our ability to live in a free society. Young men and women in the prime of their lives have put themselves in harms way for each of us. Take a moment today to say thank you.

As the offensive line goes, so the team goes!
May God bless all those who are serving and have served this Country so that I may be warm and secure in my home in the land that I love. Your sacrifice may be taken for granted by many just like the freedom that we have…I want to thank you for all that you have done.

My grandfather Phillip Fitzsimons was there that day. He was in the Indiana National Guard.
I thank God for all the brave men and women that have, and will, serve.
God Bless America!
Remembering my grandfather (Navy, WWII, Pacific) for his service to our country and my family, today and always. Thank you to all of you here who served. You guys are the real heroes.
