Why We Honor Veterans?

Veterans are those people who not only go to war. They are those who risk their lives for the freedom of their country. They are what you call Heroes, risking everything they have.

We celebrate the remembrance of those who died. And those people who still live. November 11 also know as Veterans or Armistice Day. It was called armistice day after World War 2 it was changed to Veterans Day to make it official. Now it is a legal federal holiday and very important to the United States of America. It is also the anniversary of the to War World 1 that occurred on November 11, 1918. Which took affect at Eleven o’ Clock on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day on the eleventh month.

Veterans day is celebrated with parades, speeches, and in many other ways. Inscriptions of names are written of each and every one of those individuals in the order they were taken from us. Honors are given to those who’ve return as a little gift of our appreciation. The pledge of allegiance is said and the flag of the United States is raised with a moment of silence to pay respect for those who have lost a relative or friend in any war.

People say that fighting is a bad thing; war is the same thing except risking their lives to try and save all others in the world. And one day eventually all those veterans, which have fought on a war, will accomplish that dream. That dream all veterans have, of changing the world to bring freedom and piece at last.
