Today, we honor our Nation's Veterans. These brave men and women are the reason we can live free. A heartfelt thank you to all who have served!
One of the best things about creating your own paracord creations is that you can customize them to your size, color preference, and in this case, branch of the military.
I bet you know a veteran; tell them thank you today. There are many ways to honor your loved ones, here are just 4 of them to get you started.
First, a brief history on Veterans Day (from history.com):
Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day–a common misunderstanding, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Memorial Day (the fourth Monday in May) honors American service members who died in service to their country or as a result of injuries incurred during battle, while Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans–living or dead–but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
