|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.

In war, there are lives risked and lives taken
Men and women giving their best to defend what they love
They defend their country
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
