Veterans day is a time once a year that we celebrate on November 11.We celebrate to honer the people in the military for serving this country. On 1919 Woodrow Wilson declared that on November 11 it will always be known as Armistice day. Later on 1954 president Eisenhower change the Armistice day to the day we all know now Veterans day. People around the world celebrate Veterans day to thank the military. Veterans day is now the day we all love and honer the people for serving this
Memorial Day is a special day to Americans. It is a day where we come together to pay respect to those who fought so diligently to defend our freedom and allow us to go about our lives as we know them. Memorial Day is often times confused with Veteran’s Day and, while they are both related, Veteran’s Day is a day to acknowledge service men and women still alive today. Memorial Day is a day that many observed back in their day but are no longer able to do so themselves but instead are the ones being honored by the living. The day is begun with the raising of Old Glory, then she is lowered to half-mast where she remains until noon, honoring those who have gave their lives in service of this wondrous nation.
Nevertheless, the purpose of the memorial was controversial itself because there were different views on what the memorial would mean. In the article, “The Vietnam Veterans Memorial: Commemorating a Difficult Past”, Wagner and Schwartz state three issues that arise when a memorial will be constructed. “(1) the social problems of fixing painful parts of the past (a military defeat, a generation of unredeemed veterans) in the public consciousness, (2) the political problem of commemorating an event for which there is no national consensus, and (3) the cultural problem of working through and against traditional expectations about the war memorial genre” (Wagner and Schwartz). As a group, Americans had to cooperate with one another to determine
Every year, since 1971, Memorial Day has been observed as a national holiday in the United States, in which we honor those who died while protecting our country. To me, Memorial Day is a time where we as a nation, are reminded that all of the freedoms and rights that we take for granted, came at the cost of men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our country. When Memorial Day befalls its designated date, I am reminded that people fought and died for my freedom and rights. I am reminded that if people didn’t fight for me and for this country, it wouldn’t be the great and prosperous country that it is. Therefore, I take pride in the fact that someone went to war and died to protect my freedoms.
Thank you for putting your life out there for us. Thank you for protecting people's families. And thank you for putting this country first. Veterans day is for people like you to be thanked for all you guys did for this country. But people like you deserve more.
Why We Honor Our Veterans Do you know someone who is a veteran, perhaps a family member or a friend? Do you know what they had to go through? How they risked their lives for you and our country. Well today I am going to tell you what they had to go throw, what they sacrificed, and why they served.
Veterans Veterans day is coming up so instead of celebrating it let's do all we can to show we appreciate them. I don’t know about you but my favorite hero group is the U.S.A. Military. Veterans are heroes because you're reading this. The fact that I was able to type this and the fact that you're able to understand this is why their heroes. Men and women have fought so we can go to school.
I believe our nation’s veterans deserve to be honored. They do so much for our country. They risk severe physical injury, they risk mental health issues, and they defend the honors and freedoms of our nation. These are just a few reasons they deserve to be honored. Veterans put their physical well-being on the line.

Bryce Harper and Hunter Strickland’s throw-down on Memorial Day reminded us that the bad blood between two teams or players isn’t always settled by playing the game. Below are, in no particular order, the top 10 baseball brawls in recent memory. Robin Ventura vs. Nolan Ryan, 1993 The altercation between Robin Ventura and Nolan Ryan is probably one of the most iconic brawls in baseball history. In a 1993 game between the Texas Rangers and the Chicago White Sox, Rangers pitcher Nolan Ryan plunked White Sox third baseman Robin Ventura with a high 90s fastball.
Memorial Day can be considered as one of the Federal Holidays, which is celebrated in the memory of thousands of militants who died for the country. People in every corner of United States celebrate the Memorial Day. They also consider it as a good day to stay away from the hectic work schedule and go for a good cookout. However, the primary objective of having a Memorial Day is to honor and recognize all the sacrifices that have been done by the military veterans, who are alive or dead.
On the last Monday in May, Americans remember those who have fallen while serving our country. This is a significant holiday, as it lets us recognize those who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that I can continue to live as an American citizen. All of the freedoms that we, the citizens of America, have become so accustomed to have been fought for through the valor of the American military. Education, freedom of speech, and so many other fundamental rights are protected by the armed forces of America. Being an American citizen means that I have access to education, I will be able to vote, I could someday run for office, and much more.
First, I thought that Memorial Day was a simple day off from school. A day where families visit lost loved ones, but otherwise the day was just a day in a three day weekend, because it really did not apply to my family. Sometime last year, however, I was listening to my school’s announcements and realized that I wouldn’t be alive if it weren’t for the people that laid down their lives for the United States of America. This brought forth many new possibilities of where my mind could take me. I pondered the importance of Memorial Day.
