On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect. On November 11, 1919, Armistice Day was commemorated for the first time. Now this holiday is an acknowledgment for all Service men and women of our country.
Here’s how far we have come: I have a friend I play tennis with who fought in Vietnam. I also have some of these tennis friends who have immigrated from Vietnam. These men have put their differences aside and talk about their work, their kids, american politics, and occasionally, tennis. Time does heal everything.
Thanks to those who have fought and continue to fight for this country…without question and usually, without thanks.
