If you didn't know Veterans Day began in the 1900's, 1919 to be exact. This date marked the day when allies signed an agreement to end World War I hostilities. Veterans Day is always marked on the calendar as November 11; but many communities observe the holiday on the surrounding dates as well.
Veterans Day is set aside in the calendar to honor those who served honorably in the military, whether in war or at peace. So, if you are a veteran we want to say Thank You for Your Service.
