My thoughts on Veterans Day

I am a veteran.  I served for two years between two of our wars.  I deserve no praise because it was my duty; I wasn’t exposed to any danger.

Veterans Day used to be known as Armistice Day, marking the end of the First World War.  Although all sides agreed to a cessation of the war days earlier, one of the French envoys was a numerologist who wanted the Treaty to be executed at the eleventh second of the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, and it officially ended on November 11, 1918.  And thousands were wounded or gassed or died during  those extra days because of that idiot.

Don’t glorify the wars, but pay tribute to those who died or were affected all their lives because of them.  And don’t ever forget the men who put us in unnecessary wars.
