This Sunday we will be celebrating Veterans Day on November 10 at the Grass Lake United Methodist Church at 10:00 am. Our country has been celebrating Veterans Day since the end of WWI. Back then it was called Armistice Day. The name was changed to Veterans Day by an act of Congress in 1954. On Veterans Day we remember the sacrifices and service of all our men and women who have ever served in the military.
Some people seem to think that Veterans Day and Memorial Day are the same thing, but they aren’t. On Memorial Day we remember those who died in combat, but on Veterans Day the focus is on not just those who died but those who lived to tell about it as well. Our military today represents less than 1% of our total population in America. They are the only thing that stands between us and all of our enemies. I think they deserve our respect. Read More
