Pvt Tomas Claudio Celebrates Veterans Day Nov. 9
Veterans Day is an official US holiday which honors people who have served in the armed service and they are also known as veterans . It is a federal holiday observed on November 11. Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving. Veterans Day coincides with other holiday such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated on other parts of the world and also marks the anniversary of the end of World War I. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect.
The Pvt. Tomas Claudio Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1063 of Philadelphia will be celebrating Veterans Day on November 9 , 2013 at the Radisson Hotel Northeast Philadelphia. This also coincides with the 90th Anniversary of Pvt. Tomas Claudio VFW Post 1063 which was founded on August 5, 1923 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. All of the founding members were WWI veterans and most the remaining living members are from World War II . The Post is still recruiting the younger veterans to join the post and keep it active.
VFW Post 1063 is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Buddy Poppy Boy and Girl program. The Post has its first Buddy Poppy Boy and Girl in 1988. Adopted as the official flower of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States more than seventy years ago, the little red Buddy Poppy continues to serve as a reminder of the many sacrifices our veterans have made and will continue to make to ensure and protect the freedom we enjoy . When we think of Buddy Poppy, we promise KINDNESS toward one another, LOVE for our veterans, and PEACE with others and ourselves. Wear Buddy Poppy all year long to honor the dead and remember we are here to help the living. Post 1063 and its Ladies Auxiliary are proud to display the names of the young boys and girls who have helped us in the campaign.
