I have added this as my mark of respect to all of those who fell, and those who survived but are no longer with us, fighting for the freedom and democracy we have today.

I also want to offer my full respect and admiration to those who are still doing so in Afghanistan.

I also say Armistice Day. It's a day of peace. God bless all our veterans. Thanks for your service!

Great post, and my dad and grandfather always called in Armistice Day.

Rememberance Sunday which is always the second sunday in November and is used to honour those who fell in all wars, and then Armistice is specific to the end of WW1. Both are significant in the UK calendar, but the former is I think is specific to the UK, and the former is known as Armistice Day.

I'll take government holidays any way I can get them, no matter what you call 'em. On a more serious note, it is appropriate we have a separate holiday for veterans (both passed on and still surviving) from Memorial Day, where we celebrate the lives and accomplishments of those who died in the service of their nation. Plus, as Smitty points out, it is nice to commemorate the end of the War To End All Wars. Otherwise it gets no attention from anyone. Can you say Meuse-Argonne?

I guess the title was slightly wrong as last sunday was known as Rememberence Day, but regardless of what you call it, the meaning remains the same.

I still prefer Armistice Day.....
