Happy Veteran’s Day 2017

Veterans-Day-image

Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans (persons who served in the United States Armed Forces). It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect.

We honor veterans because they are willing to die for their country and countrymen. Some of these soldiers never made it back home. A lot of those who do return carry with them the scars and memories from many tours of duties. They will have to endure physical, emotional and mental anguish. The sacrifices they make for their country are irreplaceable and priceless. That is why we honor our veterans.
