Veterans Day 2011

On Friday November 11, 2011 we will Celebrate Veterans Day. Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day on November 11, 1919. It was not known as Veterans Day until 1954. At Arlington National Cemetery at 11 a.m. will be the National Ceremony, with a wreath placed at the Tomb of the Unknowns, a parade of color and remarks from dignitaries. The ceremony is a “Thank You” to all U.S. Armed Forces.

The week starting November 11 through November 17 is “National Veterans Awareness Week” it emphasizes the need to develop educational programs regarding the contributions of veterans and urge all Americans to observe the week with activities across our country.

I would like to share photos I took on November 7th at Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville KY. It took around 7,000 flags to place one at each gravestone. In the first picture you will notice a Confederate Soldier buried among the Federal Soldiers. Something you may not know is that the man who designed the first confederate flag and the official gray uniform, Nicola Marschall was born in St. Wendel Germany and his life ended in Louisville, he was buried at Cave Hill on February 24, 1917.
