Happy Veterans Day

Posted by:

To commemorate the end of World War I, Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11, 1919 as Veterans Day (initially called "Armistice Day"). Since then, Veterans Day has been held on every November 11th to honor U.S. veterans and victims of all wars.

Coincidentally, on that very same day, November 11, 1919, U.S. Patent No. 1,364,388 was filed for a toy consisting of one of more military figures which are movable to simulate certain military actions and gestures.

Happy Veterans Day -- Thanks to all who have proudly served our country!
