November 11 – A Day to Honor our Veterans
Each year on November 11th we pay special tribute and honor the men and women who have served and are currently serving our country.  It is important to remember all those who have sacrificed and fought for our country so that we have the freedoms we enjoy.  While we take time on November 11th to honor our veterans, it is important to remember and thank them for their contributions throughout the year.

The historical significance of November 11th comes from the end of World War I, when the treaty to end “The Great War” went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.  November 11th was officially named Veterans Day in 1954 and is a time for Americans to reflect upon the service of military personnel who have fought in all American conflicts.

I encourage you to take time to attend a Veterans Day event in your community.
