11.11.11 is Veterans Day or Remembrance Day in many countries around the world. It marks the armistice that ended the fighting in World War I on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. It has evolved to be a day in the U.S. and other countries to honor all veterans.
Today’s collection features a few military bookish pictures I found this week.

So on this 11.11.11 Veteran’s Day I want to say a quick Thank You to all who have served or are serving our country. My husband and stepdad both served in long ago wars and it’s nice that their sacrifice, and that of others, is not forgotten.
