The Day Every Soldier was a Private

No, not that kind of private. National Veterans Day, unlike its more sombre cousin Memorial Day, is less about the loss and more about the living - a day to honour every brave soul who’s served in the military. Whether you fought in World War II or are currently serving, on this day we salute you! Even if you've only ever fought over the last slice of pizza, take a moment to think about these astounding warriors.

Can you Hear the Bugle?

The beloved bugle tune you hear on National Veterans Day can trace its origins back to ... no, not a bugle playing competition, but the end of World War I.

Commemorating Veterans Day can therefore also remind us of their significant impact on the nation's property landscape.
