Veterans Day gives Americans the opportunity to celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. veterans. However, most Americans confuse this holiday with Memorial Day, reports the Department of Veterans Affairs. What's more, some Americans don't know why we commemorate our Veterans on Nov.11. It's imperative that all Americans know the history of Veterans Day so that we can honor our former service members properly. Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislature that was passed in 1938, November 11 was "dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day.'" As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.  [read more]

Special Announcement:
Tribute to Robert Goulet

   
 
 
 
Las Vegas resorts are being urged to pay tribute to the late Robert Goulet with marquee memorial messages on Friday, the day of his funeral. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority sent e-mails to the properties on Monday.
     Only a handful of personalities, from Presidents John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan, and members of the Rat Pack have been honored with dimmed lights or marquee tributes. A star of Broadway, film, TV and a Las Vegas headliner, Goulet, 73, died Oct. 30 in Los Angeles a couple of weeks after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis.
     His funeral will be at the Shrine of the Most Holy Redeemer, 55 E. Reno Ave., at 1 p.m. The LVCVA, with a $279.5 million budget in 2008 to promote Las Vegas through advertising, sales and special events, invited businesses to post the messages from noon to 12:15 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. "This will give photojournalists a chance to shoot the marquees on their way to the funeral service, and then again in the evening hours to take full advantage of the lighted effect." Suggested messaging included: "Las Vegas remembers Robert Goulet, 1933-2007, a great star of the entertainment world." From Norm's column 11-06-2007
