When I was a kid Veterans Day was a holiday

I’m not sure whether it was Veterans Day, or Veterans’ Day, or perhaps Veteran’s Day, but when I was a kid, on November 11 or thereabouts we celebrated a holiday that recognized American veterans. We had the day off from school and most businesses were closed.

What happened?

Is this political correctness rearing it’s ugly head? Nah, Columbus Day is way more controversial and we’ve still got that one. Too many other holidays in November? Perhaps. But that’s almost worse, to shut it down for that reason.

Whatever the reason, whatever the season, we at mikeoconnelljr.com (that’s me) salute American veterans and those serving all over the world. Every day.
