Veterans Day is a day to honor those individuals who have fought to maintain the freedoms we have in the United States of America. It has never been a very significant holiday, especially compared to rival holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas. For most people it may not be more than a day off work or an opportunity to view a parade.
