Don't forget that this Sunday, November 11, is Veterans Day!  Since it is a federal holiday Veterans Day will be observed on November 12.  Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day, and was enacted by President Woodrow Wilson a year after the end of WWI.  November 11 was chosen as the celebration day since WWI ended at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.  Armistice Day was changed in 1954 to Veterans Day in order to honor all veterans, not just WWI veterans.  For more information on Veterans Day 2012, check out the Veterans Association website.
