Veterans Day 2010

Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day and this is a card I received in a swap at Convention from Julia.  It uses the stamp sets Courage and Service & Sacrifice, plus the jumbo wheel Hero.  It is a perfect way to express our thanks to all members of the military, especially on this day.  

From  On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as "the Great War." Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.
