Veterans are our family; they are our neighbors, our friends, our coworkers. The brave men and women who serve and protect the U.S. are an important part of our every day life and our communities.
Today, we celebrate Veterans Day. We honor those who have served in our armed forces and have risked their lives to protect our rights and our freedom.
Short History of Veterans Day:
Veterans Day, originally known as Armistice Day was first celebrated on November 11th, 1919 to honor WWI soldiers. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 and Veterans Day became a national holiday in 1938.
