By Joe Niemiec Jr.

On the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month: And so ended the hostilities of “the war to end all wars.” What began as Armistice Day has since 1938 been a day of honoring all veterans.

This is truly a day to honor people, veterans,  for serving and sacrificing in defense of what they believed in. Today we still have military personnel serving all over the world, some in combat areas, most in relatively safe places and yet they are serving the country, their family and friends the best they know how.

I tip my hat and say “Thank You” to all that have served, are serving, and look forward to the day we no longer need a standing military and we honor those that “served.”

At the 11th hour of this day
I take a moment in silence
To thank all those that have served.
