Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man observes Veterans Day. I have never served in the military during wartime or peacetime. However, I am proud to have had the opportunity to work on a few military projects as a civilian. Today, I am trying to serve America and the world as a yard safety super hero.
Veterans Day is an American holiday for honoring living war veterans. It is both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states. The holiday has been observed annually on November 11 - first as Armistice Day, later as Veterans Day. The day has since evolved as a time for honoring living veterans who have served in the military during wartime or peacetime, partially to complement Memorial Day, which primarily honors the dead. There has been some discussion of whether a person's veteran status depends upon his/her retirement or discharge from any of the armed forces. However, the term applies to any that have honorably served their country or that have served in a war zone as directed by their superior officers or as directed by lawful orders given by their country.
Thank you to all those veterans who have served America in the military. Please be a Yard Safety Crusader!
