On November 11th, we will be celebrating Veteran’s Day. It is a day to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism and their willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
Veteran’s Day, originally called “Armistice Day”, was first celebrated in 1919. It marked the first anniversary of the end of World War I. In 1938, it became a national holiday, but it wasn’t until June of 1954, the name was changed to “Veteran’s Day” to honor all military veterans.
Today there are roughly 24 million living veterans and 9.2 million of them are over the age of 65. These Veterans could be friends, neighbors, parents, children, grandparents or even co-workers. All of which serve an important place in our communities. We honor them on November 11th for the sacrifices they’ve made for our freedom.
So, on this Veteran’s day, take a moment to think about all our great veterans who have served this country and extend a thank you to one you may know. If you don’t know one personally, leave a message online thanking them. We will be posting thank you messages on our FaceBook page, as we have served several military families. Please share your words of thanks.
