Today, November 11, is Veterans Day, a day set aside, both in the United States and other countries, to honor military veterans, but originally the nearly eight million who died in World War I. The impact of that war spanned the globe. For example, Australia sent nearly 330,000 soldiers to fight in Europe; over 53,000 never came home. Veterans Day was originally established as Armistice Day, "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace". Too bad that cause often seems to be misplaced.
We are still waiting for all of our military veterans to come home.
