“So take away the gun, From every mother’s son, And put an end to war.” – Al Jolson.
Originally recognized after World War I, Armistice Day was changed to Veterans Day after the Korean War, and as many veterans see it, to a day honoring patriotism and war. Knowing the inhumanity of war, veterans are calling for a return to the spirit of Armistice Day – a desire to unite for peace.
Listen in to guests as we talk about the history of Armistice Day and how it was changed in the 1950s to Veterans Day. Find out why it is an important day and what it means for our nation.
