Today is the 77th observance of Veteran’s Day.
First proclaimed a holiday by then-President Woodrow Wilson on November 11, 1919 the date was officially made a holiday by an act of Congress on May 13, 1938.
Please, take a moment today and thank a veteran for his or her service. The brave men and women of our Armed Forces have sacrificed their time, energy, and even their very lives to ensure that people across the world may live in freedom. We owe them our thanks and our respect.
They are the real American heroes. Honor their service this Veteran’s Day.
