In Honor of My Uncle Clay for Veteran’s Day

The diary was kept from the time he was captured until the date he was liberated from Stalag IVB Mulburg.

I searched until I found a suitable sentiment that would express our thanks. Of all the material I read, I decided a prayer for our veterans would be most appropriate.

Veterans Day By The Numbers

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11th became a national holiday beginning in 1938. President Dwight D.
