Veterans’ Day

“Veterans Day is an acknowledgment that those willing to make
the 
ultimate sacrifice for our country – and their families – deserve our admiration and respect today and every day. “
-Elizabeth Esty

 

On the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, at the eleventh hour in 1918 there was a cessation of fighting in World War I.  Seven months later the war officially ended with the Treaty of Versailles. Shortly thereafter in 1919, President Wilson named November 11th “Armistice Day” – a day to remember those who served in the war.  In 1938, November 11th was further adopted as a national holiday, and in 1954 Armistice Day was renamed “Veterans Day”  to include all American veterans who have served our country.  We proudly continue to celebrate Veterans’ Day with parades, ceremonies, and local assemblies of recognition.

To those in uniform serving today and to those who have served in the past, we honor you today and every day.
