Happy Veteran’s Day
Eleventh hour, of the Eleventh day, of the Eleventh month
State and Federal Communications, Inc. wants to take the time out to celebrate the service of U.S. military veterans.
On Nov. 11, 1918, the Allied nations and Germany came together to sign an armistice to end World War I. President Wilson was the first to declare November 11th as “Armistice Day” to honor those who died in the WWI.
After the casualties of World War II, the day was extended to celebrate all veterans. In 1954, Congress approved the bill to officially change it to “Veteran’s Day.”
In the words of President Wilson, “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
To observe the holiday, State and Federal Communications will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 11th and will resume Thursday, Nov. 12.
