Happy Veterans Day 2021

Thank you Veterans

Share This Post

November 11th is the official date of Veterans Day. 

This is the day in which we pay homage and remember all of those who paid the ultimate price for defending our country, as well as those who have served, currently or in the past, in our U.S. Military. Flags will be hung at half-mast, a two-minute period of silence occurs at 11 AM, and a wreath is laid at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

We are very blessed to be able to enjoy our freedoms and cannot thank our Veterans enough.

This holiday, originally known as Armistice Day, began following World War I and was meant to be a constant reminder that there is a price to be paid to keep our way of life. Always in money, sometimes in blood, sacrifices for the common good.

According to The Oxford Companion to American Military History, here are the American military casualties based on the wars of the 20th century:

214,938 Soldiers died in the Civil War.

53,402 Soldiers died in World War I.

291,557 Soldiers died in World War II.

47,424 Soldiers died in the Vietnam War.

54,260 Soldiers died the Korean Conflict.

4287 Soldiers died in the Iraqi War, 30,182 wounded.

2378 Soldiers died in the Afghanistan War.

Thank you to our Veterans. Thank you to our Soldiers. Thank you, also, to our First Responders.

All my best,

Elliot Kallen
