Birthdays And Anniversaries For November 11th + Veterans Day
If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share this date with country music singer, Narvel Felts, born near Kaiser, Arkansas,in 1938.. The rockabilly-tinged singer notches a handful of hits in the mid-1970s, including country remakes of Dobie Gray's "Drift Away" and Jackie Wilson's "Lonely Teardrops". Happy 77th, Narvel.
This Is Veterans Day!
This day honors all members of the Armed Forces who served this country valiantly, and in a very big way. They served and fought to protect us, to keep our country safe, and to preserve our way of life. Veterans gave their time, and risked their lives for you and me. In some cases, they made the ultimate sacrifice.
This holiday originally was called Armistice Day and was first celebrated in 1921. In 1954, President Eisenhower changed it to Veteran's Day, in honor of those who served and died from all wars.
On November 11 at 11:11, 1921 the U.S. France and England each buried an unknown soldier in honor of those who died in World War I. This began the annual Armistice Day holiday. The time and day was picked because fighting ceased in WWI in 1918 on November 11 at 11:11. In keeping with this tradition, work stops on this day and time each year for a moment of silence.
