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.
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.

Well, real estate’s got to get in the game somehow! Did you know that after World War II, the GI Bill allowed veterans to borrow money to buy homes, leading to a surge in American suburbia? Commemorating Veterans Day can therefore also remind us of their significant impact on the nation's property landscape.
