We Honor You
In honor of the men and women that risked and often sacrificed their lives for freedom to reign, RedNationRising salutes you.
Please stand, remove your hat, and with hand over heart looking at Old Glory take a moment to listen to our National Anthem and the second verse of our National Anthem.
Meet the Men Who Guard the Tomb of the Unknown
The Placing of our Flag
Veteran’s Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, began in 1921 with the burial of an unknown World War I American soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. Joining America in burial of an unknown solider was England and France. November 11th was chosen to celebrate the end of World War I fighting, which took place on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour. Armistice Day was changed to Veteran’s Day in 1954 by President Eisenhower to honor all Veteran’s, not just those from World War I.
On a personal note, I pay tribute to my grandfather who fought in both WWI and WWI, my father who fought in WWII, my uncle who fought in WWII and my step brother that fought and remains missing in Viet Nam. I enjoy freedom and liberty because you and many along side and after you were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to ensure America remains forever free. May you rest in peace.
