Happy Veteran’s Day

            On November 11, 1918, during the 11th hour on the 11th, a peace agreement came into effect between Germany and allied nations. Armistice Day was officially observed on November 11, 1919.  In 1954, Congress replaced the name Armistice with Veterans to celebrate all veterans and not just those that died in World War I.

             Veteran’s Day is intended to honor, thank and celebrate the services of all U.S military veterans who have served in all wars. It is in remembrance for those who secured our freedoms while we work, sleep and play.

           “Freedom is not free” (Colonel Walter Hitchcock). Always keep the military in your prayers.

All the best,
