“On the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour in 1918, a cessation of hostilities was honored and WWI came to its unofficial end. Veterans Day (then known as Armistice Day) began as a commemoration to acknowledge the heroism of those who died and to show gratitude for the WW1 victory. Over time, it evolved into an opportunity for Americans to show thanks to all of those who have served our nation in one of the armed forces, and to perpetuate peace and understanding amongst nations.”
Today, as we all honor our veterans past and present, our own Pat Finn has posted a wonderful blog post highlighting some of our programs and activities that help us serve those who serve.
“All of this is to say that we greatly appreciate and are committed to our nation’s veterans, who have so bravely demonstrated their commitment to America.
From all of us, thank you for your service and your sacrifices.”
