Though begun as “Armistice Day,” Veterans Day has expanded in the United States as a day for all those brave men and women who fight to keep us free. But we must never forget those who sacrificed themselves.
The First World War was truly a senseless war, as this monument in Hungary aptly demonstrates.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, let us remember they who risked everything for freedom, including their very lives.
Requiescat in pace.
