RECIPE OF THE WEEK: Pasta with Sausage

A Note from the Editors:


In the United States we enjoy many freedoms that people of other nations do not have such as the freedom of religion, the right to free speech and assembly, the freedom of the press, the right to protest, the right to purchase property and the right to vote. Sadly, many military men and women have paid with their lives to guarantee US peace and freedom. Veteran's Day is an annual holiday in the US to pay tribute to all those, living and dead, who have served in the US Armed Forces and honor those who have fought for the US and continue to maintain US freedom.

Veteran's Day was formerly known as Armistice Day and was recognized in 1919 by the US, France and the United Kingdom to commemorate the ending of World War I (11:00 a.m., November 11, 1918). After World War II Armistice Day became a day of tribute to the fallen Allied soldiers as well. In Canada it became known as Remembrance Day and in Great Britain it is known as Remembrance Sunday honoring soldiers of both world wars. After the Korean War, President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day honoring veterans of all US wars.

The national ceremony for Veterans Day is held at the Tomb of the Unknowns at the Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. Municipalities observe the holiday with parades and floral wreaths placed on servicemen's memorials and graves.
