Circle of Trust:

Veterans Day is officially observed on November 11 in recognition of the day when an armistice — or temporary cessation of hostilities — ended what was then called The Great War. Germany and the Allied Powers – including the United States– signed the Armistice at Rethondes, France on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

On May 13, 1938, Congress voted to make November 11 a legal holiday known as Armistice Day to honor veterans of the “War to End All Wars.” Sadly, that name became outdated as another conflict inflamed the world in the 1940s. In 1954, veterans’ service organizations urged Congress to change the holiday from “Armistice Day” to “Veterans Day.” Congress agreed to the name change, and on June 1, 1954, November 11 became a day to honor all U.S. veterans. 

As a Veteran who recently retired, I missed the brotherhood that was my military brothers. Over nearly the last year I have found that brotherhood and filled that void with you all in F3, so I want to thank each and everyone of you for being my brother!  Chowda echoed this sentiment and gave thanks to all the Veterans and their families for their sacrifices.

Chowda then concluded with Prayer  where we prayed Tin Cup, Pit stop and his family, Barndoor’s aunt Jackie, Lisa, and her family as well as all prayers left unsaid.


DA KINE and Chowda!
