Veterans Day 2018
Veterans Day is observed every year on November 11th. Veterans Day evolved from Armistice Day, which was proclaimed in 1919 by President Woodrow Wilson. Armistice is when warring parties agree to stop fighting; Armistice Day recognizes the end of World War I when hostilities ceased on November 11th at 11 A.M, 1918 (11th hour, of the 11th, of the 11th month).
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs official site on November 11th, 1947 Raymond Weeks, a World War II veteran, organized a "National Veterans Day" parade in Birmingham, Alabama to recognize veterans of all wars.This celebration may have helped influence Congress to change Armistice Day to Veterans Day in 1954 to recognize Veterans of all U.S. wars.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower made November 11 the official national observance of Veterans Day after Kansas Congressman Ed Rees proposed the bill in Congress to change Armistice Day to Veterans Day.

The men and women of VFW Post 10148 extend a heartfelt thank you to all the Veterans of this great country. Enjoy your day - you have earned it! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Notice of Meeting Change
The monthly Post meeting for November will be held on Wednesday, November 14th, (the second Wednesday of the month) instead of Wednesday, November 21st, (the usual third Wednesday of the month). This move allows time for any final planning for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Art Show weekend, Nov 22nd-25th. All Post members are invited to attend the monthly Post meeting on Wednesday, November 14th, at 6:30 PM. We still need some more volunteers for the weekend activities!
