We often forget that what we in the USA call 'Veterans Day' is, in most of the rest of the world, 'Armistice Day' - the day the guns fell silent, on November 11th, 1918 - and 'Remembrance Day', honoring all military veterans who died in the line of duty. I'm rather sorry that the USA chose to distance itself from the rest of the world in honoring this observance.
It's also the root of the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey, England. You can read more about the history of that day here. It's worth it, showing the grief of a nation and Empire so soon after the events that inspired the memorial.
Thank you to all veterans who have served. I'm proud to call you my comrades in arms, no matter what your country. Let's also remember the fallen, who are forgotten by so many today. We, their living comrades, have more cause than most to honor them, because we've shared their service.
