 A thank you to all veterans today as we reflect, remember, and show gratitude this Veteran's Day. 

V is for Victory! I remember singing this song in Bible class when I was younger. It really relates to the subject today, the Victory Pin. Victory Pins were made in the 1940's for World War II. Women would wear Victory Pins, along with vivid bright red lipstick and matching nail polish. Victory was the mindset, they kept optimism and strength for our country in their everyday lives. Victory pins were made in many different shapes and colors. Red lipstick was worn by almost all women. Many women started working while men were at war, and their red lipstick and nails were a way of keeping their femininity. Red lipstick is patriotic, confident, and feminine no matter the situation they were in.
