 Today's holiday is first known as Armistice1 Day in honor of troops who served in World War One. The name was later changed to Veterans Day in the U.S. to honor everyone who's served in the America's arm forces, regardless of when, regardless of where. You'll see parades and celebrations going on nation wide. The Veterans day national ceremony will happen at Arlington National Cemetery2. It's an honor and gratitude3 for America's service men and women. Something interesting about the date this time around. It's 11.11.11. First time that's happened since Veterans day became a holiday. Last time it will happen until 2111. 

We've got your comments about veterans day coming up. But we want to bring in a veteran to talk to us as well. I'd like  you to meet retired4 staff Sergeant5 Lois B . He served at the U.S. Marine6 Corps7 and the California Army National Guard. He now happens to be a teacher in California who used to see CNN student News. He sat down with me earlier via Skype for this interview. 
As someone who served in the U.S. military. What does Veterans Day mean to you?
Eh, it's a day that we actually sit back and appreciate those that have served, all of those who have served in the service all the way from the beginning of the American Revolution, all the way to the current time now. And it's a great time to just say Thank you for what they have done for us. 
Is there something in particular that you do having served in the U.S. military now that you are out of the military. 
Well, now at teaching, I actually try to share that information with my students, especially that I teach about World War One, so we actually teach about the history of Veterans Day, how it started out as Armistice Day. When they ended all fighting with World War One, and now we can live in this new time when we actually appreciate that all of those soldiers that allow us to have those freedoms that we now enjoy. 
We know a lot of students in our audience are considering going into the military. What advice do you have for them? 
See me first. I used to a recruiter. 
So you are the right guy to come to. 
I can talk to some of the veterans first before you actually talk to a recruiter. They can actually give you a little bit more of what is like on the inside. It's a great opportunity. 
And finally Mr. B .Do you consider teaching a former service as well. 
Oh, I sure do. A lot of the skills I took from the service I actually use in my classroom. You know, you don't leave a soldier behind. I can't leave a student behind. If one of my students fails, I fail. So I'll make sure that I carry my students all the way through mission and bring them to success.
