Inscriptions of names are written of each and every one of those individuals in the order they were taken from us. Honors is given to them. The pledge of allegiance is said and the flag of the United States is raised with a moment of silence Pease to pay respect for those who have lost a relative or friend or love one while in the war. Because for those people who have serve there parts in the army for helping to make the USA a better and safer place for us to live. We celebrate veterans day because, the date November 11 was originally celebrated the anniversary of the end of World War I.
Veterans Day is also a day in which not only all living or passed veterans are acknowledged but everyone who fought whether it be during a time of peace or wartime is acknowledged. In the United States, from the years of war till present time today, there are approximately 23.2 million Veterans who have served our country. Veterans Day is important for America to celebrate because it shows the love, compassion, and support we as a country have for our troops. It is a sacrifice that the soldiers out in the battlefield made, and the soldiers who have returned home. The nation's economy and the stability of the nation is all depending on the firefight of the soldiers in the field today.
I believe it portrays the real image of “American Victory at War”, and stands for the very freedom that every American carries in their heart. It is a true symbol of patriotism. Because I was fortunate enough to experience this in person, and see it with my own eyes, I almost felt like I was there when this historic event took place. It confirmed my new found perspective of “seeing is believing”. You tend to appreciate history better by associating yourself with it.
They also sank over 55% of all Japanese shipping sunk in WWII. This was all pointed out to me with pride by several of these veterans. As our National Anthem was played over the speaker system some of them started to cry as they remembered all of their fallen comrades, the ones that served with them, and the ones that did not. I thought about how many of these veterans brothers had made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may all enjoy the freedom this country offers. As we stood for the Pledge of Allegiance I saw the reaction on their faces, it was a thoughtful, respectful look, a look of such sadness.
The citizens of the United States of America probably wouldn’t have their rights today, if soldiers hadn’t fought for America. Soldiers risked their lives and left their families by going to other countries. Everyone who fought or is still fighting for America is a military hero because they are a very important part of American history. Americans need to always honor their military heroes. People aren’t forced to join the armed forces; they volunteer.
My uncle fought in World War Two as a member of the 42nd Rainbow Division. To me, my great uncle embodied the idea of a hero. After returning home from the war, settling into his life as a husband, civilian and laborer, my uncle became a member of his local chapter of the American Legion. He was always active in the undertakings of his chapter and worked tirelessly for the charities the chapter supported. One such charity was the Children’s Welfare Fund of Jefferson County Wisconsin, which was renamed for him after his death.
No solider was in the wrong during the war they were all fighting for a common causes there lives and a dream. This trip really opened my eyes to the extent of the loss during the first world war. One day I will go back and pay my respects again to the me who died and when I have children I will take them there to. To show them these brave men that fought for us and gave us the life we know and love. I will never forget this trip.
Veteran’s Day Bravery, courage, patriotism, and sacrifice. These are the reasons we acknowledge our veterans. A veteran is a man or a women who have served, and continue serving everyday. We truly owe everything to our veterans. They risk their lives to fight for our country; they risk never getting to see their families again.

America has no room for the “summer soldier and the sunshine patriot” (637). Patriotism should be a permanent fixture within our hearts. Although many of America takes off from work on Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Independence Day, few actually celebrate these days or show the respect these important days deserve. Memorial Day honors our dead who died at war fighting for America’s freedom and Veterans Day honors American Armed Forces. Independence Day is our nation’s birthday and should be celebrated to recognize our country’s beginning.
