November 11, 2019 is Veterans Day, no regular weekly meeting as we honor veterans who served and those who are serving for the ultimate goal of world peace.  Originally, on June 4, 1926, Congress passed a resolution that the “recurring anniversary of [November 11, 1918] should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations,” and that the president should issue an annual proclamation calling for the observance of Armistice Day.  Later, this commemoration was renamed as Veterans Day and pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
