Veterans Day 2023

This is the day we honor all who served regardless of the branch of the military. Originally known as Armistice Day, it was a day to recognize the end of the Great War aka World War I and those who fought in it. The armistice signed by the Allies and Germany ceased hostilities on the Western Front on November 11 at 11am.

It was renamed Veterans Day in 1947 to recognize all veterans and not just those from the First World War. It became a holiday in 1954 after President Eisenhower signed the bill designating it as such.

I want to thank all those who served regardless of their age, gender, or branch of service.
