Celebrating Veterans Day

v  Veterans Day originated as "Armistice Day" on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I.
v  In 1926, Congress passed a resolution for an annual observance and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. 
v  Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans--living or dead--but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
Please remember to express your appreciation to a veteran today in person or through the Wounded Warriors Project referenced above!
