VETERAN’S DAY

November 11, 2020

Shipmates,

On the11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918, the armistice went into effect ending “The Great War,” World War I. One hundred two years later, we continue to recognize those who put on the uniform.

Originally known as Armistice Day, in 1954 President Eisenhower signed into law to change this day to Veterans Day as to include all veterans.
