Happy Veteran’s Day!

Thank you to all the brave men & women who protect and serve our great country.

I learned at work yesterday that Veteran’s Day was originally known as “Armistice Day” in its inception in 1919 by President Wilson after World War I. In 1958, President Eisenhower changed the name to ”Veteran’s Day” and declared it would also be a three-day weekend. This confused calendar makers every year, so finally they finally settled on November 11 as a day to honor those the brave men and women who have served in our armed forces. #USA #Murica 😀🇺🇸❤️
