The President's 2005 Veterans Day Proclamation
"A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America"
"Americans owe a great debt of gratitude to those who have sacrificed for our liberty and for the security of our Nation. We express deep appreciation to our veterans -- the men and women who stepped forward when America needed them, triumphed over brutal enemies, liberated continents, and answered the prayers of millions around the globe."

The History of Veterans Day: "World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919 , in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles , France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918 , is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

Four Legendary Leaders Honored
With Their Own StampsBy R. R. Keene (Gerald F. Merna contributed)
"The long-awaited Distinguished Marines stamps will be officially unveiled and placed on sale at U.S. post offices and businesses across the country this month. The United States Postal Service and the Marine Corps will host a First Day of Issuance Stamp Ceremony to honor four legendary Marines on Nov. 10, the Corps’ 230th anniversary, at Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C., and Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, Calif"....

...."Retired Marine Mustang First Lieutenant Gerald F. Merna, who worked for the USPS for 18 years, including serving as Executive Assistant to the Postmaster General, compiled the following biographical information: GySgt “Manila John” Basilone"

Stories: Donald F. Antonacci:"While this story is lovingly dedicated to Donald, it also includes his four Brothers because of the love they shared for one another, forever interrupted until the hereafter by the untimely loss of their dear brother Donald." by Gerald F. Merna

History of St. Agnes: Historical Beginning: (Abridged Version By: Gerald F. Merna:)
One history says: "In 1884 a three story, 19-room farmhouse (that was once a summer hotel) and some 30 acres of property were purchased, four sisters and 25 boys took up residence, and St. Agnes was born). There are other dates and other versions, 1904, 1905, but we should leave all that to whoever/whatever is put on the web site, good material for lots of stories anyway....
