Many (perhaps most, if not all) will spend some part of today reflecting on the service they gave to their country.
Many (hopefully most, ideally all) of the other 300 million Americans will devote today to thanking those who once wore a military uniform -- thanking them for the tremendous self-sacrifice at the heart of their participation in the armed forces of the United States.
I'm proud to have been among those who served. It was an honor and a privilege to have helped protect liberty for the people of the greatest nation on earth.
To all, I wish you a happy Veterans Day 2013.
Or, if you're old enough to remember (and you prefer to remember it as such), happy Armistice Day.
In case you're too young to remember, Armistice Day was a commemoration of the signing of the 1918 agreement that ended World War I. Under its terms, the combatants' guns everywhere were to fall silent and hostilities to formally cease at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
It was known as Armistice Day until 1954.

UPDATE: In my excitement over the upcoming christening, I inadvertently wrote that the big day, Nov. 2, was a Tuesday (error now corrected above). What happened was I confused 2013 with 2021, the next calendar year when Nov. 2 falls on a Tuesday. An easy enough goof to make. Could happen to anybody. But nonetheless a mistake meriting my apology. For the record, Nov. 2 this year was a Thursday. Or, possibly, now that I think about it, more likely it was a Saturday. Yes, definitely. A Saturday. :)
My name is Mark Feine, and I’m on a mission.
Not a mission like those I participated in more than 25 years ago as a U.S. Navy machinist’s mate aboard nuclear subs patrolling international waters and guarding against sudden attack from brazen foreign enemies.
The mission I’m on today, as a civilian, is the quest to obtain justice on behalf of other veterans of America’s armed forces who are dying or dead because they were exposed to the toxic mineral asbestos.
