Today is the official observance of Veterans Day, 2018!

Today is the official observance of Veterans Day, 2018!

Thank you to all of those who served our great nation, whether in war or in keeping the peace.  Veterans Day is a well-known American holiday, but there are some misconceptions about it. Did you know these facts? Veterans Day is not the same as Memorial Day. It’s easy to get this confused. Memorial Day is the time to remember those who gave their lives for our country, particularly in battle. Veterans Day honors all of those who have served the country in war or peace. However, we should especially take this day to thank living veterans for their sacrifices. Veterans Day 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 Allies and Germany put into effect an armistice on the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.” It was hoped that the Treaty of Versailles...

Happy Labor Day from OurSeniors.net

Today is Labor Day and the staff at OurSeniors.net wishes all of our seniors and their families a relaxing and safe holiday. Labor Day was first celebrated in the far-off state of Oregon, way back in 1887, so this will be the 131st time that Labor Day has been celebrated somewhere in the United States. By the way, Labor Day is also celebrated in Canada, so a warm greeting to our northern great neighbors as well. OurSeniors.net salutes the men and women who worked so hard to make our nation strong, prosperous and free. Every person in Florida and throughout the United States has benefited from the productive energy of the seniors who have contributed so much to our nation, its defense and its economy. Of all the states in this great nation, the state of Florida may owe the greatest debt to seniors. Florida has the highest concentration of seniors of any state. Seniors who moved here from other parts of...

The Reason for Memorial Day

The Reason for Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, and we at OurSeniors.net wish each of you a very happy holiday. There will be races, and parties, bar-b-ques and get-togethers, which is all good and fine. But, please take more than a moment to recall what Memorial Day is intended to do, to remember and recognize the sacrifice of those who, “gave their last full measure of devotion” for our nation. Memorial Day observances have been held since the years following the Civil War. Hundreds of politicians, clergy and patriots have given speeches on this day, but the finest Memorial Day speech ever delivered may have been given before there even was such an observance. In November of 1863, President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to speak at the dedication of the Soldiers National Cemetery, a memorial to the soldiers who fought and died there. Lincoln delivered the greatest speech in American history, many think the greatest ever given in the English language. He summed...

Happy Labor Day from OurSeniors.net

September 4th is the first Monday in September, and that means Labor Day in the United States and Canada. In the United States, it became an official federal holiday in 1894, but before that 30 states celebrated Labor Day. Oregon was the first to do so, in 1887. This year will be the 130th time that this day has been recognized nationwide or at least in some of the states. OurSeniors.net takes this opportunity to salute the men and women who have worked long and hard to make our communities, our economy and our nation the great things they are today. We have all benefited from the inventions, the innovations and, most of all, the work that has made America the most wealthy and productive nation in history. You have done a great job, and if you are a senior, it is time to reap the benefits. That’s a big part of the OurSeniors.net mission. We want to make every person’s transition...
