November 10th Forget-Me-Not Day

November 10th Forget-Me-Not Day

Judge Robert S. Marx returned from World War 1 a wounded man. When he returned he saw other disabled men who seemed to be forgotten. He created a day that all should remember those men, not the just the ones who died, but the ones who returned as well. Sometimes the wounds were obvious, others were not. Sometimes, the obvious wounds are easier to recover from than those not seen. And so in 1921 he created Forget-Me-Not Day. This day works for all wars and conflicts. Anyone serving at any point continues to fight their own wars over and over again, even when they come home.

How to celebrate – Remember all those who served our country. Look up the veterans in your family. Visit the heroes everyone else has forgotten.
