Veterans Day (NEWK Style)

Happy Veterans Day everyone!

And yes, we spelled it correctly.

We looked into it.

Here is what the Veterans Day Wikipedia page says:

The holiday is commonly printed as Veteran's Day or Veterans' Day in calendars and advertisements. While these spellings are grammatically acceptable, the United States government has declared that the attributive (no apostrophe) rather than the possessive case is the official spelling.
See, we actually do research around here.

They also taught us this...

It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)
So there you go.

You are officially smarter now, than you were 10 minutes ago.

And as a reward, he is a video clip of the great Lee Greenwood,
singing his masterwork "God Bless the USA."

(Watch out for the bug attack at 1:26)

He did a USO tour of Pakistan back in '03.

What a great human.

Also, if you are reading this early enough.
Don't forget to check out the Veterans Parade this morning in
Arnold and New Ken. Read about it HERE.

Wingapalooza will be back very, very soon.

Thanks goodness for that, as we are starving.

Thanks again, to all the veterans and their families.
We appreciate everything you have done, and continue to do.
