As a quasi-employee of the federal government I of course have Veterans’ Day off.  This year it’s particularly noteworthy because of the numerological coincidence, but as I’ve mentioned before I think remembering the actual origin of the holiday as Armistice Day is important and unfortunately often overlooked in this country.  It’s interesting to note in this connection that Obama’s proclamation of the holiday this year explicitly mentions the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
