Image: REMEMBRANCE Volume I: Remembering My Veteran Friends and Guests from Living History Days | Paperback: 414 pages | by Kenneth Buckles (Author), Benjamin Blair (Author), Bob Christenson (Editor). Publisher: Independently published (October 8, 2020)
Veteran's Day
-- An American holiday honoring military veterans. It is celebrated in the United States or wherever a veteran lives in the world. It is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice ending World War I.

(Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)

Many restaurants give a free thank-you dinner to any person who has ever served in the United States Military.

Read: Remembrance: Remembering My Veteran Friends and Guests from Living History Days
-- For twenty four years I've brought American veterans from all over the United States to high schools in Oregon to share their military experiences during times of war with the students. Over the years, as I became friends with many of these veterans, they began to open up and share with me. Many veterans refused to talk for years but reached out to me as they become older as they wanted their stories remembered. Even their spouses and children had never heard many of these shared stories. This book is also unique as it includes chapters from American veterans of many races, all of whom have served their country with great pride. We must not forget all of these men's and women's stories, lest we forget the cost they gave for our freedom.
