Cyclerides.com Weekly Update

Greetings Riders,
 
Well, I hope you have been able to enjoy this beautiful riding weather that we are having here in the Valley of the Sun. I have heard that a lot of you are taking day rides around the State. This is the perfect time of year to do that. A good ride that seems to get overlooked is the 4.5 Spoke rated Tonto Natural Bridge Day Ride. This is a good little ride that is only 85 miles from the Loop 101 and Shea Blvd. But the cool part is you can take a little hike through the natural bridge when you get there that is very enjoyable. Click Here for a video tour of the ride and the hike.
 
Most of you know that November 11th is Veterans Day, a day set aside as a government holiday to honor Veterans of all Wars. But do you know the history of Veterans Day, formerly "Armistice Day"? Since we all owe a debt of gratitude to the Veterans that have served to defend our Country, I thought we should have a better understanding of how this day began. On November 11th, 1918, the Germans signed the Armistice, an order was issued for all firing to cease; so the hostilities of the First World War ended. This day was set aside to reflect and remember the sacrifices men and women made during World War I in order to ensure peace. The first official celebration was on November 11th, 1919. Veterans who survived the war marched in parades and were hometown heroes. Ceremonies were held and speeches were made. World War 1 was called ‘the war to end all wars’ because everyone hoped there would never be another one.
 
Almost 20 years later in 1938, Congress voted Armistice Day a federal holiday. Unfortunately the very next year, in 1939, World War II began. This ended the theory of no more wars. It seemed that with the progression of war came the progression of death. Over 16.5 million Americans took part in World War II and 407,000 died in service. Over 292,000 people died during battle. After World War II, Armistice Day was still celebrated on November 11th. After World War II, there were many new veterans who had little or no association with World War I.  The word, "armistice," means simply a truce; therefore as years passed, the significance of the name of this holiday changed.  Leaders of Veterans' groups decided to try to correct this and make November 11 the time to honor all who had fought in various American wars, not just in World War I.
 
In Emporia, Kansas, on November 11, 1953, instead of an Armistice Day program, there was a Veterans' Day observance.  Ed Rees, of Emporia, was so impressed that he introduced a bill into the House to change the name to Veterans' Day. The name was changed to Veterans' Day by Act of Congress on May 24, 1954.  In October of that year, President Eisenhower called on all citizens to observe the day by remembering the sacrifices of all those who fought so gallantly, and through rededication to the task of promoting an enduring peace.  The President referred to the change of name to Veterans' Day in honor of the servicemen of all America's wars.
 
Almost everyday that I turn on the news it is a stark reminder that unfortunately, the original "Armistice" lived for only a short time. Since World War I ended, where the we lost 116,516 soldiers, and the signing of the Armistice, proclaiming "The war to end all wars" there has been over 500,000 U.S. Soldiers perish in the line of duty. This number includes the deaths of the enlisted Men and Women that have served our Country in World War II (405,399), Korean War (36,574), Vietnam War (58,200), Persian Gulf War (382), Afghan War (247), and the Iraq War (2026) and counting.
 
As I have said before, I have not served in the armed forces. My age put me available for duty just as the Vietnam war was ending. In my younger years, and not being in the service, I didn't have a full appreciation for what Veterans Day really meant. But as I have gotten older, and had the privilege to meet many of the Veterans and current Servicemen and Women who ride motorcycles, it has really made me realize how much we owe those of you that have put on a uniform and gone to fight for our freedom. From WWII to the Iraq war, no matter what war you served, I personally thank all of you for your bravery and service to our Country.
 
Doing the research for this newsletter was very enjoyable to learn about the origins of Veterans Day. But as I reviewed videos it was also very emotional at times. There are 3 things that can stir emotions in me faster than anything and that is God, My Country and Children. And not by accident, I do what I can with all three by serving with our Church, organizing the Hearts to Heroes Ride and the Toys to Kids ride. One of the most recent was the Hearts To Heroes Ride this past March. As I was going back over the videos and pictures from the Hearts to Heroes Ride it was nice to see the Tribute to the Veterans and all of those serving in the military today. It reminds me how Blessed we are as a Country to have Men and Women who will go willingly to fight for our freedom. I invite you to view all of the videos from the H2H Ride. There is an especially gripping testimony from Jesse McGuire that you will enjoy. Click Here for the Video Page.
 
My prayer is for the safety, comfort and safe return of all of our service Men and Women all over this World.  I also pray that someday there will no longer be a need for a bugler to continue his graveside duty of "Taps" for those returning home, and that Peace would be declared instead of war.
 
If you do nothing else today, I would encourage you to watch this flash presentation of the Armed Forces Tribute. It happens to encompass the 3 things that get to me most. It features the music of Ricky Skaggs and the voice of a small girl named Avery. I'm sure you will enjoy. God Bless America.
