Veterans Day 2010

November 11, 2010


Veterans Day (or Armistice Day or Remembrance Day if you prefer) is observed each November 11th in remembrance of the signing of the Armistice at the conclusion of World War I.  The formal signing occurred at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.  While Armistice Day was celebrated for the first time the following year, 1919, it didn’t become an official U.S. Federal Holiday until 1926.  In 1954 it was formally changed to commemorate all veterans rather than just those who served in World War I.

May those who served that have passed before this day rest in peace and all those that are still with us that serve or have served enjoy the honor, admiration and respect they deserve from all of us. 

 To all veterans… Thank You.
