         ~ The FReeper Canteen Remembers ~   ~ Veterans Day 2020 ~   Veterans Day gives Americans the opportunity to celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. veterans. However, most Americans confuse this holiday with Memorial Day, reports the Department of Veterans Affairs. What's more, some Americans don't know why we commemorate our Veterans on Nov.11. It's imperative that all Americans know the history of Veterans Day so that we can honor our former service members properly.  Memorial Day honors service members who died in service to their country or as a result of injuries incurred during...

  • Amid Election Fiasco, Military and Veterans Face Uncertain Future on Veteran’s Day

    11/11/2020 10:36:45 AM PST · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | November 11, 2020 | Julio Rivera
    In America these days, particularly among the younger generations, the perception of the greatest military force in the history of the world, the United States Armed Forces, has swung in a negative direction.  There are many theories that have been concocted in the past 20 years or so to attempt to explain this phenomenon. Some experts opine that as a result of a heightened emphasis being placed on private school higher education, the military has started to become a less attractive option for young Americans after high school.Additionally, the two unpopular wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have caused younger Americans,...

    In the flurry of modern politics, remembering Veterans Day may seem unimportant. It is not. Remember with me. Our democracy depends, in the end, on whether we believe enough in it - and in the freedom it affords - to defend it. America’s veterans – living and dead – have done that. Somewhere in the heart of each was the resolve, arrived at long ago, that America is worth dying for. Under varying circumstances, with motivations from family to freedom, obligation to honor, each stepped up, took up arms, trained and – as needed – faithfully deployed. The operative term...

  • University of Virginia Reinstates Veterans Day 21-Gun Salute: ‘We Made a Mistake’(DOH!)

    “Sometimes you make mistakes. Although motivated by good intentions, I believe we made a mistake this year in excluding the 21-gun salute from our Veterans Day ceremony. Having attended the ceremony, and having consulted with the Commander in charge, I am confident that we can accommodate a 21-gun salute, which had been a meaningful feature of the ceremony in years past. “We will therefore reinstate the 21-gun salute next year, and we will make sure to minimize any disruptions to classes and communicate the details of the ceremony in advance. Thanks to all who shared their views about this topic,...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed and jeered by spectators as he marched in the city’s 100th annual Veterans Day Parade on Monday. One parade-goer — wearing an American flag sweatshirt and a mask depicting President Trump partially on the top of his head — shouted F-bombs as Hizzoner walked past. Other onlookers called the mayor “Comrade de Blasio” and urged him to go home. De Blasio waved an American flag and appeared unfazed by the taunts and mocking as he walked the 1.2-mile route along Fifth Avenue from 24th Street to 46th Street. Among the thousands of spectators at...

    Citing “gun violence,” the University of Virginia has canceled the 21-gun salute portion of its Veterans Day ceremony, an annual tradition that dates back at least a decade. In a statement posted to social media on Saturday, university President James Ryan stated the reason was two-fold: “to minimize disruptions to classes, given that this event is located at the juncture of four primary academic buildings and is held at a time that classes are in session; and second, recognizing concerns related to firing weapons on the Grounds in light of gun violence that has happened across our nation, especially on...

    Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders rarely misses an opportunity to push abortion. Today is no different. While Americans are celebrating the service of millions of veterans and their brave dedication to keeping our country free, Sanders is promoting his agenda for the Department of Veterans Affairs. he wants to turn VA hospitals into abortion clinics by making sure women veterans can keep abortions to end their babies’ lives at VA hospitals. “The proposal would expand incentives for companies to hire veterans, bolster access to mental health and suicide prevention services and ensure women veterans receive women’s health services, including fertility...

    Veterans Day, celebrated each year on November 11th, was first celebrated on this same date in 1919, under the name of Armistice Day. The holiday was named in remembrance of the temporary ceasefire that brought about the unofficial end to World War I when, the year before, the Allied forces entered into an armistice with the Germans, stopping live battle on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. A year later, and nearly five months after the official end of the First World War (which occurred on June 28, 1918, with the Treaty...

    Linval Lindsay, a Jamaican immigrant, teared up when he finally became a naturalized American citizen Monday — decades after serving in the United States Army. Immediately following the New York City naturalization ceremony, which was broadcast live on Fox News, Lindsay spoke with “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt. “I was drafted more than 50 years ago. Served in, went up to Greenland. Went up to Greenland twice. I came back. The Army has been my, one of the best two years of my life, really,” Lindsay replied. “My mother cried, I’m so happy she cried. Today I’m happy.” Earhardt...
