Today is Veterans Day ... or Armistice Day as it was first called. When World War One was closing the allies and Germany signed an "Armistice" or an agreement to cease fighting. This prompted a day of celebration named Armistice Day on the first anniversary of the end of the "War to end all wars". Armistice Day, Nov 11th, became a national observed holiday in 1938 to remember fallen soldiers. This turned out to be just about a year before the beginnings of World War Two. In 1947 the term Veterans Day was adopted and the meaning was expanded to include honoring ALL of our Veterans living or dead.
Coffee has a long history with our troops
From the very first wars soldiers have huddled around coffee
And all through the years a "Cup of Joe" has been there to lift the spirits
Part of every day life as a soldier
Coffee has been a strong source of comfort for our brave troops.
Even now we send coffee to our troops overseas by the pallet load
And we have a Nominate a Soldier program. Do you know a soldier overseas? Take a minute to fill out the form at this link and we will send them some coffee for you!
