Remembering Our Veterans

0 Comments

November 11, or what has become to be known as Veterans Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor Armistice Day – the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In 1954 after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress (at the urging of the veterans service organizations) amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting the word “Veterans”. With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, November 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Veterans Day honors all members of the Armed Forces who served this country valiantly. They served and fought to protect us, to keep our country safe, and to preserve our way of life. Veterans gave their time and risked their lives for you, me, and our families.

Jane Carter Solution honors ALL veterans, living and deceased. Thank you for your selfless service to safeguard our freedom.

Heroes

By Jared Jenkins

In war, there are lives risked and lives taken

Men and women giving their best to defend what they love

They defend their country

Their honor

Their people

Some call them soldiers

Others call them heroes

Our veterans have risked their lives for us

They have lived through hell and fought with honor

Many have killed

And regret doing so

For every life, there is a soul

For every soul, there is a life

For those who have died, we show great appreciation and remembrance

For those who live, along with them live the horrific memories of battle

Some, memories of defeat

Some, memories of victory

Our veterans were more than soldiers

They were, and still are heroes
