Veterans Day

Veterans Day is observed in many countries each year.  Those who have served in the Armed Forces have earned our nation’s full respect and admiration.  Armed Forces exist solely to ensure every nation is safe, so that each one of us can sleep soundly at night, knowing we have Guardians at the gates.  

The eleventh day of the eleventh month every year is dedicated to the sacrifice and heroism of U. S. veterans.  Before it was called Veterans’ Day it was known as Armistice Day marking the end of the First World War which took place on the 11th of November, back in 1918.

Armistice Day was made an official holiday to honor the service members of the First World War.  This changed in 1954, after World War II and the Korean War were over.  The word Armistice was officially replaced with Veterans on 1stJune 1954.  In other Countries Veterans Day is known as Remembrance Day.

Thanks to our Brothers & Sisters that served or are serving our Nations Armed Forces to keep us safe.
