With Gratitude at Thanksgiving

With Gratitude at Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving Day began as a day to give thanks for the harvests and preceding year.  We celebrate it on the fourth Thursday in November here in the United States but it is observed on different days in October and November in other countries.  (Click here for 15 interesting facts about the Thanksgiving holiday.)

Happy Veterans Day


Every year, Veterans Day is observed on November 11th and honors all the men and women who have served – either during war or peacetime – in the 5 branches of the US military.  Here are some interesting facts about the holiday:

  • Veterans Day was formerly called Armistice Day. It began on the first anniversary of the end of World War I, November 11th 1919.
  • World War I officially ended in 1918, at the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month.
  • November 11th became a national day of remembrance and holiday in 1938.
  • President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially changed the name to Veterans Day in 1954.
  • From 1971-1977, Veterans day was celebrated in October. It was changed back in 1978 thanks to General R. Ford signing Public Law 94-97.

There are approximately 21 million living veterans in the United States, which represents around 6.5% of the U.S. population.  Here’s how the numbers breakdown:

  • 16.1 million living veterans served during at least one war.
  • 2 million veterans are women.
  • Of the 16 million Americans who served during World War II, about 558,000 are still alive.
  • 7 million veterans served during the Vietnam War.
  • 5.5 million veterans served during the Persian Gulf War.
  • 2 million veterans served during the Korean War.
