Veteran’s Day

VETERAN’S DAY This is a the day each year when we honor those who served in the many wars this nation has fought. When I was young, many people still called this day Armistice Day, the day that ended World War I. On the 11th hour of the 11 day of the 11th month that great conflict ended and in 1919 President Wilson declared Armistice Day to be a national holiday. It wasn’t officially named Veteran’s Day until 1954, when Dwight Eisenhower signed it into law, allowing that the holiday would now honor all veterans. So to all of you veterans, even though the holiday won’t “officially” be celebrated until tomorrow, thank you for your service to our country.
