Veterans' Day Event with Team 9

Today, Team 9 hosted a Veterans' Day event for our students to speak with a Veteran.  US Marine Corp Veteran, Robert Collins, joined us to discuss his experience in and out of the military.  Robert Collins served in the Marine Corp for 7 years.  During that time, he was able to travel to various parts of the world including Arizona, Iraq, Kuwait, Ireland, and Rome, Italy.  Mr. Collins grew up in Newark, Ohio and spoke with our Team 9 students about the cultural diversity he experienced upon enlisting in the military.  A life skill he took away from his military experience included money management skills.  Robert discussed how this helped in transitioning to adulthood and having to be financially responsible with his pay.
 
Thank you US Marine Corp Veteran, Robert Collins, for joining our Team 9 students and discussing with them about your military experience, aspects of recruiting, basic training, and giving some excellent advice on how to approach anything in life:
"Like most things in life, you have to make the best of it." - Robert Collins
 
Thank you for your service Robert!

November 11, 2020

Today is Veterans’ Day.  What does this mean?  Veterans’ Day was originally called Armistice Day to commemorate the cease-fire for World War I (1914 - 1918).  Armistice Day was officially set at 11:00am on the 11th of November, 1918, or the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year.  This provided a time for the soldiers to know when to stop shooting at each other.  Armistice Day was known as such until World War II began (1939 - 1945) when the name changed and its purpose would be to honor all the living veterans.  This is not to be confused with Memorial Day or Armed Services Day.  Memorial Day was established in 1866 to honor the Civil War (1861 - 1865) soldiers who had died.  Veterans’ Day honors the soldiers who are still living.  Unlike most holidays, Veterans’ Day is held on the same date every year regardless of which day of the week it falls on.  Most veterans do not talk much about their wartime experiences because they saw it as their duty.  Not something they wanted to do but something that needed to be done.  Today, and every day, when you encounter a veteran, take the time to thank them for their service.  It costs nothing from you to show your appreciation and means the world to them.
