The True Meaning of Veterans Day


For some, Veterans Day is an annual furniture sale or an across the board offering not just to those who have served our country but for anyone that will walk through the door.American Flag

Sales gimmicks honestly cheapen the real reason that Veterans Day is a national holiday.  In many ways, it is just plain inappropriate.




Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11th every year.

There is probably not one single person in this great country that does not know someone who has served in our armed forces.  If you are one of very few, then go to your nearest hospital, nursing home and ask if you could say Thank you to someone who they are caring for.  You could also go to your nearest cemetery and lay flowers at a grave with a military marker to give thanks for their service.

The rest of us need to go to, text, email, call the first person that comes to mind, that you know has served in our military honorably, and give them Thanks for your freedom.

Without our military, we would not be the land of the free, the home of the brave.

MI Headlines thanks every brave person who has served our country.
