Or, if you're in the UK, Armistice Day, I believe. In other places, Remembrance Day.
In any case, it is the 11th day of the 11th month and hearkens back to the armistace of the Great War (WWI).
Thank you to all the veterans out there, past and present.
Specifically, I would like to thank my father, my husband, my father-in-law, my great uncle, my ex-husband and his father, and all those whom I know personally for serving in the U.S. miliary services. (Happy birthday, too, Nathan.)
