Happy Veterans' Day

For all of those in the U.S. (or who are expatriate Americans), happy veterans' day. Today is the 87th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. Until the Second World War, the observance was known as Armistice Day and commemorated veterans of the Great War. Now, however, it has been expanded to take into consideration all those who have served our country militarily in time of need. So if you haven't done so, take some time today to remember that you only get to do things like read blogs because men fought and died to preserve our way of life. Freedom isn't free.

St. Michael the Archangel, pray for those who have recourse to thee
