The fifth Veterans Day of the Forever War, which has now dragged on longer than World War I

November 11: Veterans Day
November 11, 1918 -- the end of the "War to End All Wars." That didn't work too well. Now celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in the rest of the world, Veterans Day in the U.S., celebrated both on Nov. 11 and as a Monday holiday. This is the fifth Veterans Day of the Forever War, which has dragged on longer than World War I. We no longer talk about ending all wars. We can't even figure out how to end the one we've got.
