Today, please do not...

... wish someone a "Happy" Veteran's day.

It's like saying "Happy Memorial Day". Just. Plain. Wrong.

If you insist on using "Happy", please resort to the original name of this day - Armistice Day. That makes much more sense.

Besides, if it were a true day to remember and appreciate Veterans, then all the Vets would have the day off, with pay, and not the banks and government workers, while most vets have to work to afford the cat food they need for dinner.

-
I am a veteran.
TheHusband is a Veteran.
We both have a brother who is a Veteran.
TheHusband's father is a Veteran.
My father was a Veteran.
Both of my Grandfathers were Veterans.
