The events of Sept. 11, certainly, are fresh in Americans' collective consciousness. That type of heroism will be celebrated again this Veterans Day,
Nov. 11, a federal holiday that originally marked the cessation of hostilities during World War I (then known as Armistice Day) which happened at the
11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
But according to Karen Winant, signature events coordinator of the Wounded Warrior Project™, Americans have forgotten that Veterans Day is more than
a "day off and a long weekend." That's why the not-for-profit Wounded Warrior Project , whose mission is to honor and empower wounded soldeirs, just
launched its "Believe in Heroes" campaign, running through November 11.
I agree, way too many people forget that Veterans Day is celebrated to honor those brothers and sisters of mine that served this great country in
Today, that holiday is marked by retail store sales and long weekends. Does anyone care about those that served, are still serving and died for
