Hello, and welcome to yet another blog post from the Stale Grapes News. Today’s topic is dedicated to all the Veterans out there, and I have a very tough question to ask regarding them:
As we all know, World War I drew to a close that day in 1918, and since then, things didn’t exactly go very well (which was why we had to have World War II) and also, the boys in America who gave their blood for their country needed a day to honor their service, whether it was on the front lines or behind the scenes.
So how did that come about?
I’m glad you asked, because my history teacher never fully covered it in class. Thanks a fricking lot, Mr. Deltridge!
So, why honor veterans?
Because they gave up their lives to protect their country and the people who live in it.
So, should it still be a thing?
I will say yes, it should. And for the reasons that I already listed. May we never forget the sacrifices that were made to protect our freedom, and may we have the courage to take care of those who protect our country.
In conclusion, do YOU think that Veteran’s Day should still be a thing? Please let me know in the comments.
