This Veterans Day 2019, President Trump became the first President of the United States to officially kick off the New York City Veterans Day Parade.

To date, President Trump has remained steadfastly committed to honoring and protecting not only the legacy of those who serve our nation, but he has steadfastly supported, both financially and emotionally, the men and women who serve our great nation!

94-year-old veteran Allen Jones gave President Trump a hug during his speech to the VFW Convention in Kansas City in 2018. detailed the history of Veterans Day by pointing out

Veterans Day gives Americans the opportunity to celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. veterans. However, most Americans confuse this holiday with Memorial Day, reports the Department of Veterans Affairs.

What’s more, some Americans don’t know why we commemorate our Veterans on Nov.11. It’s imperative that all Americans know the history of Veterans Day so that we can honor our former service members properly.

Therefore, added that…

Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislation that was passed in 1938, November 11 was “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day.'” As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.

In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress — at the urging of the veterans service organizations — amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, Nov. 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

In 1968, the Uniforms Holiday Bill ensured three-day weekends for federal employees by celebrating four national holidays on Mondays: Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Columbus Day. Under this bill, Veterans Day was moved to the fourth Monday of October. Many states did not agree with this decision and continued to celebrate the holiday on its original date. The first Veterans Day under the new law was observed with much confusion on Oct. 25, 1971.

Finally on September 20, 1975, President Gerald R. Ford signed a law which returned the annual observance of Veterans Day to its original date of Nov. 11, beginning in 1978. Since then, the Veterans Day holiday has been observed on Nov. 11.

As a result, the Gateway Pundit so eloquently pointed out a previous poem that they posted in 2010 from BG

It Has Always Been The Soldier

It is the soldier,
not the President who gives us democracy.

It is the soldier,
not the Congress who takes care of us.

It is the soldier,
not the Reporter who has given us Freedom of Press.

It is the soldier,
not the Poet who has given us Freedom of Speech.

It is the soldier,
not the campus [community] Organizer who
has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.

It is the soldier,
who salutes the flag;
who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
that allows the protester to burn the flag.

ENR would like to thank all those men and women who have served our great nation, and provided the freedoms that unfortunately too many take for granted, by burning the American flag, calling for the end of Constitutional freedoms and rights, and those who try to eradicate our Constitutional Republic, in the name of Socialism, Progressivism, and Marxism! Fortunately, we have a President who stands up for and defends our Constitution, our Republic, for ‘We the People’, and those who protect and defend this great nation!
