So, TODAY is Veterans Day, not four days ago as posted on CIWT (Please See Days 10/182 & 183).  There was an extensive article and a parade that day which confused Ciwt and maybe had her readers scratching their heads.  But really any day is a good one for thanking service people, animals and birds who have fought for centuries to preserve our beloved country.

Of course Ciwt should have known Veterans Day is on November 11th to honor an armistice between the  U.S.-led Allied nations and Germany. It went into effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 and is officially recognized as the end of World War I.*

*The treaty was signed in Versailles seven months later.
