A Tribute to our Veteran’s… 1918-2018

November 11, 1918 marked the end of World War I.

Whether you’re in England celebrating Remembrance Day, or France celebrating Armistice Day or the USA celebrating Veteran’s Day,  each year, for the past 100 years,  the world stops, on November 11, to thank our veterans and remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.

As we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I,  I’d like to stop and take this opportunity to thank all of our veterans as well as current members of the military, for your service, giving up your lives to protect our country.

You are heroes


I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

“The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.”

From: Dwight D Eisenhower’s D-Day message 

Here is a Veteran’s day tribute video,

with footage beginning with WWI.


About Tamara Hoerner (1348 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
