Veterans for Peace- We are reclaiming the original intention of Veterans Day by celebrating Armistice Day– and a worldwide call for peace that was spurred by universal revulsion at the huge slaughter of World War I back in 1918. After World War II, the U.S. Congress decided to re-brand November 11 as Veterans Day. Who could speak against that? But honoring the warrior quickly morphed into honoring the military and glorifying war. Armistice Day was flipped from a day for peace into a day for displays of militarism. We must continue to press our government to end reckless military interventions that endanger the entire world. We must call for an end to war.
