    November 11th is Veterans Day in America.

    Originally it came from Armistice Day, which we celebrated the end of the Great War (now just called WWI) which ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918. Interestingly enough the last casualty recognized in the war was actually an American which was the last country to enter the war. In terms of tonnage used one can easily argue that not only one but several nuclear bombs were dropped over the Western Front in the form of weeks long artillery barrages. Gas Warfare, Trench Warfare, Disease, unbelievably high casualty rates, all but forgotten when just 20 short years after the war ended Germany decides they want round 2.

    Disgree. There are some who really need a "Thank You".

    Yes. Also because they're the ones who will never ask for thanks.
