 Honoring Our Nation's Veterans And HerosVETERANS DAY  -  On Veterans Day we honor our nation's Veterans and heroes.   Those who have sacrificed for others.  Those who are committed to protecting our country and other nations.   Those who have fought to preserve our freedom, liberty, independence, justice and sovereignty.   On November 11, 1918 major hostilities of World War I formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month with the German's signing of the Armistice.   In 1954, President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day, and called upon Americans everywhere to rededicate themselves to the cause of peace, and to honor all American veterans, where ever and when ever they had served.   "As we express our gratitude (to our veterans), we must never…
