Veterans Day

In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11th as Veterans Day and called upon Americans everywhere to rededicate themselves to the cause of peace.

The Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year on November 11th at Arlington National Cemetery.  At 11 a.m., a color guard, made up of members from each of the military services, renders honors to America's war dead during a tradition-rich ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

Currently, there are more than 22 million Veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces that have reintegrated back into our society. To all of you, we say thank you for your service.
