For Veterans Day

Did you know?
  • Veteran's Day always falls on November 11th, no exceptions.
  • In 1918, World War I ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when an armistice was signed declaring the "war to end all wars" was finally over.
  • The next year on November 11th, the U.S. called the day "Armistice Day" in memory of all the men and women who served in WWI.
  • Congress changed the name to Veterans Day in 1954.
  • Veterans Day is a legal holiday in the U.S. to honor all who have served in the nation's armed forces.

Take A Moment To Thank A Veteran

When you see someone in a uniform
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,

Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.

Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
"Thanks for what you’re doing;
To keep us safe in the USA!"
