Veteran's Day

Veteran’s Day

 November 11, 1918 marked the date on which the end of the “war to end all wars” occurred.   On the first anniversary of this Armistice Day, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed that all Americans should celebrate with pride and gratitude for those who had fought and died for freedom. Veteran’s Day was officially recognized as a national holiday in 1971.  Veterans continue to be on honored each year with parades and ceremonies that help us remember the sacrifices that they made and still make on our behalf.   So thank a vet!  And remember that freedom isn’t free.
