Veterans Day

Today the United States observes the national and state holiday of Veterans Day, formerly called Armistice Day and Remembrance Day.

November 11 is the anniversary of the 11th hour signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. It is commemorated annually to remember military veterans.

  • Important to remember, is that by an Act of Congress in 1938, it was intended as, "A day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace."

  • Click the label Spirit under this post for ideas for more peaceful dealings in the world. Peace must be practiced like any other exercise, to make you fit and strong.

  • To promote a safer healthier world, I will donate signed books as gifts to Fitness Fixer readers serving in harm's way. I have a small supply of the third edition expanded "Ab Revolution™ No More Crunches No More Back Pain," if you can cover shipping. Contact me through the BOOKS link of my web site and let me know your APO.
