Veterans Day 2020

This coming Wednesday, 11 November 2020, we commemorate Veterans Day.

Originally called Armistice Day, Veterans Day was created to recognize of the end of World War I. Fighting between the Allied nations and Germany ceased on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. That date is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”  Veterans Day was made a legal holiday in 1938. Today we take this special day to honor all U.S. military veterans.

My dad, Herbert Miller, and his two brothers LaVerne and Kenneth, all served in the U.S. Army.

Miller brothers, Herbert, LaVerne, and Kenneth, all veterans.

A big thank you to all veterans who served in our great county’s military, who served at home or abroad.

Thank you for your service.
