To all who have served our country in the past and all who are currently serving, thank you.

Did you know that Veterans Day, which used to be known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I?  In 1938 legislation was passed declaring November 11th  as “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day.'”   In 1954 legislation, the word “Armistice” was replaced with the word “Veterans” and Nov. 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

    Around the world, this day is celebrated. Back home we call it Remembrance Day. Different name, same idea.

    Thanks to all those who serve.
