Historic Tidbit
Veterans Day will be observed Nov. 11. Originally, Veterans Day was called Armistice Day until 1954 when President Eisenhower signed legislation to change it to Veterans Day as a way to honor the millions of men and women who served during World War I, World War II and the Korean War. Americans continue to honor those who served during Vietnam, the Gulf War and the Middle East.
Fly the beautiful U.S. flag on Nov. 11 in tribute to these fine men and women and give silent thanks to all veterans who have given so much and continue to give.
