"A lot of people think it’s “Veteran’s Day” or “Veterans’ Day,” but they’re wrong. The holiday is not a day that “belongs” to one veteran or multiple veterans, which is what an apostrophe implies. It’s a day for honoring all veterans — so no apostrophe needed.

It was originally called Armistice Day, commemorating the end of World War I.
World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. However, the fighting ended about seven months before that when the Allies and Germany put into effect an armistice on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
For that reason, Nov. 11, 1918, was largely considered the end of “the war to end all wars” and dubbed Armistice Day. In 1926, Congress officially recognized it as the end of the war, and in 1938, it became an official holiday, primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I.

But then World War II and the Korean War happened, so on June 1, 1954, at the urging of veterans service organizations, Congress amended the commemoration yet again by changing the word “armistice” to “veterans” so the day would honor American veterans of all wars.

World War I was a multinational effort, so it makes sense that our allies also wanted to celebrate their veterans on Nov. 11. The name of the day and the types of commemorations differ, however. Canada and Australia both call Nov. 11 “Remembrance Day.” Canada’s observance is pretty similar to our own, except many of its citizens wear red poppy flowers to honor their war dead. In Australia, the day is more akin to our Memorial Day.

Great Britain calls it “Remembrance Day,” too, but observes it on the Sunday closest to Nov. 11 with parades, services and two minutes of silence in London to honor those who lost their lives in war." (defense.gov)

If you have the opportunity today (or any day), take the time to thank a veteran. Honor the sacrifices our men and women in uniform make each day so that we may have our freedoms by showing each other grace and kindness and sharing with them your appreciation.

Happy 88th Birthday to astronaut Joe Engle, the only person to have flown two different types of winged space vehicles. Engle flew over 185 different types of aircraft, logging over 14,000 hours, and spent 224 hours in space. Born Aug. 26, 1932 in Abilene, Kansas, Engle grew up in nearby Chapman. He attended the University of Kansas, a 1955 aeronautical engineering graduate. Commissioned through the AFROTC, he earned his wings in 1958. Engle graduated from the Air Force Experimental Test Pilot School in 1961 and the Air Force Aerospace Research Pilot School in 1962. In 1963, he was chosen as a test pilot for the X-15 program. In 1966, he was named an Apollo astronaut, serving on the support crew for Apollo 10, and backup lunar module pilot for Apollo 14. The first space shuttle, Enterprise, was used to test shuttle landings. In 1977, launched from a Boeing 747, Engle flew Enterprise to two landings. In 1981, he was given command of the second shuttle flight - the only shuttle commander who had not flown an orbital space mission, launching on Columbia - the first time a previously flown manned spacecraft was re-flown. Along with his pilot, he spent two and a half days in space. At mission's end, he flew the shuttle manually from its Mach 25 orbital speed to a successful runway landing. In 1985, Engle commanded his second shuttle mission, flying Discovery with a five-person crew. His piloting skills were again used to perform a complex rendezvous with a malfunctioning orbital satellite, which was captured and repaired during a series of ambitious spacewalks. After seven days in space, Engle landed at Edwards. He retired in 1986 and was inducted into the International Air & Space Hall of Fame in 2014.

Today is the anniversary of one of the oddest-looking aircraft of the period between the wars, the Vickers Victoria, which had its first flight in 1922. This military transport had an open cockpit at the nose, but a large enclosed fuselage. The Victoria could carry up to 7,000 pounds of fuel and cargo! Not bad for 1922, right? Nearly 100 were built, but we're guessing at least half of you had never heard of it before... are we right?

Happy Independence Day to everyone! Have a safe and fun evening! Take a moment to remember the reason for the day!
