Thankful for our Veterans

As I sat and thought about what my blog topic should be for today, I paused, thought and remembered that it is Veteran’s Day. So instead of a typical BBS blog, it will be about how thankful I am to the men and women who have served and continue to serve and protect our country.


Veteran’s Day was first known as Armstrice Day and recognized as a holiday in 1926. It marked the day that the WWI allies along with Germany signed an armstrice to end the fighting in the Western Front. It was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. It became a national holiday in 1938 and officially was re-named Veteran’s Day in 1954 to honor all U.S. Veterans.

To date, there are no known survivors from WWI. Wikipedia states that the last surviving veteran from WWI was Frank Buckles who died in 2011 at the age of 110. According to the WWII Museum, our veterans from WWII, known as the Greatest Generation, are still roughly 855,000 strong. On average though, 492 of them die per day. In all, there are an estimated 20 million veterans alive today.

So please take a moment today to honor or thank a veteran. Maybe you have a family member, neighbor or friend who served our country. If you have a U.S. flag, fly it proudly. It’s because of their service, both those alive and those who have passed while defending our freedoms, that make us the great nation that we are.

From Bare Body Shop to all our veterans, thank you.
