Veterans Day - Will It Finally Settle?
I was kind of confused with Barack Obama's proclamation (see attached text file) of Veterans Day on November 11, 2009. I've thought we've had Veterans Day before. But after reading about Veterans Day on Wikipedia, I have begun to see the big picture.
In the past, Veterans Day had been changed back and forth on various dates. It didn't even start out as a day for all veterans. And some organizations (including the U.S. Government) did not recognize it as a national holiday. Many stores and outlets remained open.
With Barack Obama's proclamation, Veterans Day is now a nationally recognized holiday. It is another history in the making, right in front of our eyes.
