Veteran's Day

On November 11, 1918, an Armistice was signed bringing an official end to World War I. This Armistice Day concluded an unfortunate chapter in world history with peace. Sadly, the peace did not last. Following World War II, Armistice Day was renamed Veteran’s Day to honor all U.S. Veterans that have served in the Armed Forces.

It is on this day that we honor their service and have the opportunity to say thank you. So…Thank you.
