Veterans Day

97 years, nine hours ago, the armistice ending The Great War took effect.

It is Armistice Day, Remembrance Day and Veteran's Day; depending on where you live.

For Veteran's Day:  Take one out to dinner, movie, get laid; whatever.  Especially the vets who stood the watch when nobody was shooting, but if it started the world would burn.

Of course, at one time, if you had not seen the elephant, you weren't a veteran; however, "They also serve who only stand and wait."

This day is for those who served, not for those who are serving.  That's Armed Forces Day.

This day is for the living vets, not the dead ones.  That's Memorial Day.

It cheapens the other days to attempt to consolidate them all today.
