We Salute Our Veterans
Today, we salute our nation’s veterans. I sincerely appreciate the sacrifices made by our men and women (and their families) in service to our country. I encourage you to thank a veteran for their services!
The holiday was first observed in the United States in 1919 as Armistice Day, marking the day one year earlier, November 11, 1918, when the United States and its allies reached a formal agreement with Germany to end World War One.
