"Whether storming the beaches of Normandy, holding the line at Bunker Hill, or braving the perils of a Desert Storm, America's citizen soldiers have never failed to rise to the challenge (J. Reynell)." Originally labeled Armistice Day, in 1954 President Eisenhower changed the official name to Veteran's Day, in an effort to honor all who have faithfully served in our nation's Armed Services.
Always observed on November 11th, Veteran's Day is a perfect opportunity to show support for our men and women who have served, and who currently serve in the Armed Services. A voluntary service, these men and women choose to protect the freedoms we take for granted, and uphold the constitution; a document whose contents have become lesser known, yet it is that document that guarantees those rights and freedoms that our men and women serve to protect.
Veteran's Day; a perfect opportunity to fly your flag, attend a parade or ceremony, or most importantly, shake the hand or hug the neck of a Veteran and sincerely thank them for their service.
