Veterans Day - November 11

In 1918, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in the eleventh month, the world rejoiced and celebrated. After four years of bitter war, the Allied powers a signed a cease-fire agreement (an armistice) with Germany at Rethondes, France on November 11, 1918, bringing World War I to a close. The "war to end all wars" was over.

My Fellow Veterans,

I woke up this morning, November 11th, 2007 feeling a deep and quiet sense of pride in being a member of a rare breed. I am one of those who stepped forward to do dangerous things in distant places for little acclaim. For a time I was upset by a news story that showed how a traveling display here in Memphis sought to link the firemen, policemen and victims of 9/11 to Veteran’s day. That is patently wrong. Those people are heroes in their own right and in their own context are as deserving of recognition. However, their courage and sacrifice is not on the same level of the military veteran and should not be foisted upon the national consciousness as if it were.
