Dear Mary, Laura and Sarah:

Hello girls, I have something very important to tell you about this war and the meaning of Veterans Day. We should never forget that Veterans Day used to be called Armistice Day.

This particular day was chosen because that was the month, day and hour that World War I ended, which was Nov. 11, 1918, at 11 a.m. This was supposed to be the “war to end all wars,” but of course we know that it was not the last one.

Sometimes on Veterans Day, we lose connection to the real meaning of the day. I’ve written a few words that may help you to understand what it is all about.
