Veteran’s Day is a day for observance, reflection and thanksgiving. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed Armistic Day for November 11, 1919. "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."
On this anniversary of “The Great War” officially ending, we look back and remember those who have served and are currently serving. For their love of country and patriotism; we celebrate Veterans from all corners of this great country and we are immensely grateful for their sacrifice and service.
To all Veterans, we thank you; today and every day.
