Veterans Day coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I; major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect.
The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
On Nov. 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress resolved to create two battalions of Continental Marines for the War of Independence from Britain. In 1798, President John Adams signed the Act establishing the United States Marine Corps. The 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps, General John A. Lejeune, issued Marine Corps Order No. 47, Series 1921, directing that on Nov. 10 every year, in honor of the Corps' birthday, the Order's summary of the history, mission and tradition of the Corps be read to every command.

The Military Veterans chapter is alive and growing. This year, many new members joined our group at the Southeast Area Rally in February and during FMCA’s 95th International Convention in March. We now have approximately 300 families, and we have plenty of room for more.
Our chapter was formed in 2010 and is an international chapter. Besides being an FMCA member, members must be either active duty or honorably discharged from the United States or Canadian armed forces or National Guard.
We are asking all veterans to join us, as we have social activities and also help fellow veterans who are less fortunate than we are.
We hold our chapter business meetings at FMCA conventions. If you’re a veteran and want to check out our chapter, come visit us in Indianapolis, Indiana, during FMCA’s 96th International Convention, July 12 through 15.
During morning Coffee Hour on one day of the convention, while the Frustrated Maestros are playing anthems, we present flags representing branches of the military. At area rallies, we participate in chapter fairs and socials.
We often have socials and joint rallies with members of FMCA’s Elk International chapter (Elks support veterans) and members of the Full Timers chapter. Our regular summer rally will take place after the Indianapolis convention.
As our chapter grows, we plan to form even more groups based on where members live. That way, they can gather at their own rallies and decide what local veterans organization to support and how they will do that. A group in Florida is 72 members strong and assisted in giving homeless veterans permanent housing through Hearts and Homes for Veterans Inc. in Cape Coral. A group of chapter members in Colorado is also active in procuring assistance for vets with various needs.
The Military Veterans chapter donated $1,000 in 2015 to a fund that helps veterans and their families, the Fisher House Foundation (www.fisherhouse.org).
We keep in touch by using RVillage (www.RVillage.com) and our own blog (www.mvcfmca.blogspot.com), where you can see pictures and learn about our outings. Our blog also has a membership application. Annual dues are $10.
For more information, contact me at email@example.com or by phone at (209) 471-3905. See you in Indianapolis!
