Veterans Day was originally created on November 11, 1919, one year after the ceasefire of WWI. It was actually known as “Armistice Day” at the time, as it still is in some other countries. The name wasn’t changed to “Veterans Day” until 1971 when it was made an official holiday.
There are some interesting fact behind the history of this holiday click here for “20 Fun Facts about Veterans Day” . (For a while some states celebrated this holiday in October and some in November. It got pretty confusing for a while!)
Fun facts aside, today is a day that we remember to thank all those men and women who have, and who continue to serve our country. Graf Investments wants to let you all know that we recognize and thank you for the sacrifices that the life of a veteran brings with it. Your daily commitment gives us a freedom that is rare to find in this world, and for that, we salute you.
