Happy Veterans Day to all who have given their lives and time in the service.Why is fragment?
Happy Veterans Day to all who have given their lives and time in the service. What make my sentence fragment? I did not see anything wrong or missing with my sentence structure. Can anyone help me out with my sentence.
Answer: Just add "I wish a" to the beginning of the sentence and it will be fine. I know that you already intend to imply that, but rules are rules when you are in school. A sentence requires a subject and a predicate. Who does what? You need "I" to provide the subject. Everything else is the predicate.

Why do people travel and pack in to restaurants on Memorial day but not Veterans Day?
I work at a restaurant and we are always SLAMMED on Memorial Day, I mean, its not even funny how busy we are, but Veterans day is usually normal, why?
Answer: Not everyone gets Veterans day off. Generally, only government and banks use this as a paid holiday. Plus, lets just admit it, we have lost focus towards those that have really sacrificed for our country and we owe so much too. It is a sad state of affairs.
I gladly shake the hand of a veteran and thank them every chance I get.

Tapes by C.I.A. Lived and Died To Save Image
If Abu Zubaydah, a senior operative of Al Qaeda, died in American hands, Central Intelligence Agency officers pursuing the terrorist group knew that much of the world would believe they had killed him.

How do you wish someone a happy veterans day?
The phrase "happy veterans day!" sounds like saying "happy 9/11!" to me. Is there a better way to say it?
Answer: If I am talking to a veteran, I try to make it more meaningful than just "Happy Veteran's Day". I try to say something that let's them know I am happy it's Vet. Day without actually saying it. Sorry if it is confusing. But I may something like, "Thank you so much for serving America and keeping our country safe." That way, it is obvious that I am thinking about the holiday but it doesn't sound as awkward.

Can I wear the ribbons I earned in the Navy on Veterans day?
I work a government job and most of the people I work with are not veterans. I will work this veterans day and was wondering, even though not in uniform, can I still wear my medals/ribbons?
Answer: Not sure if it done every year but I read a notice, online, that VA was encouraging Vets to do this.
That said lets keep in mind that it needs to be on the right kind of clothing. Not sure about the Navy but the Army has this to say about when to wear them and the type of clothing they should be worn on.
30–6. Wear of medals on civilian clothes
Retired personnel and former members of the Army (as described above) may wear all categories of medals described
in this regulation on appropriate civilian clothing. This includes clothes designed for veteran and patriotic organizations
on Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, and Armed Forces Day, as well as at formal occasions of ceremony and social
functions of a military nature. Personnel may wear either full-size or miniature medals. Personnel who wear medals on
civilian clothes should place the medals on the clothing in approximately the same location and in the same manner as
for the Army uniform, so they look similar to medals worn on the Army uniform.
I will guess that all Branch's regs are very similar if not exactly the same.
I would go with a sport coat or a dress shirt, like Class B. Don't forget the Flag pin on your left collar and maybe a rate pin on your right. What are they gonna do...tell ya to take the rate off.
Have fun with it, I guarantee you will get lot's of looks, stares and perhaps some nasty comments on the street.

What is a good idea for a debate topic on Veterans Day?
Im hosting a meeting and the topic of the day is Veterans Day. Do I need to stick to military veterans or are there other people giving there time and energy out there to make the world a better place?
Answer: Veterans Day is more about honoring individuals who are currently serving or have served their country.
Of note, you realize the military is a major contributor to the health and welfare of the communities around their military bases right? The military has a combined federal campaign, which gives servicemembers the opportunity to donate to hundreds of organizations, one of which you maybe benefiting from. And military rewards members with ample community service hours with evaluation points, thus helping them advance. So many do a lot of community service out of their own free time to better the world.

How many other presidents have not been in the US on Veterans day?
Ppl are making a big deal about Obama not being in the US today. Are there any other presidents that was not in the US on Veterans day? If so, who are they?
Answer: I'm a veteran and am glad my president is busy doing his job instead of wasting time paying lip service and doing photo ops. He honored the military by meeting with our troops in South Korea.
There is nothing magical about a president being on US soil during these occasions. Bush did all of the outward appearances thing but sent thousands of military hero's to die in a trumped up war because he wanted to appear stronger that he really is.

How should I write my Veterans Day Paper?
Ok so Im in middle school, and in language class we are supposed to write a Veterans Day Paper. I have nothing to write about at all. So i was wondering if anybody had any ideas. Thanks for all who answer.
Answer: You could write it from the vantage point of a WWI veteran. You will need to do some research about what WWI was like. 'All Quiet on the Western Front" is a classic WWI novel told from the German soldier's point of view. War is not glamorized at all in this novel.
You can also check encyclopedias about the war and what the conditions were like.
The war ended on 11/11/18.
Your paper can include memories of bombs, people dying, etc.
And, perhaps your feelings about the war finally ending.
