Veterans Day | 3 Things You Don’t Know About
-This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service and was originally called Armistice Day.
-It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.
-In 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to account for all veterans in all wars.
Thank you to all Veterans for the sacrifices you have, and are making. We are able to do what we do because you all have done, and are doing what you are doing now!
