It began as Armistice Day, marking the end of World War I. It fell on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 wherein the entire country reflected on the heroism of those who fought and died in service during that devastating World War. Then in 1954, the commemoration was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to recognize and appreciate all veterans in all wars.
Today Veterans Day remans on the 11th day of the 11th month, regardless of the day of the week as a federal holiday. This is a day to honor all who have served, living or deceased, but in particular the living veterans among us. For that reason we greet and honor the military veterans working at AMS Fulfillment and the veterans in our communities. Thank You for your service to our country!
At AMS Fulfillment we support all efforts toward improved healthcare and services to our Veterans in any way that they need care as we HONOR their service and appreciate their sacrifice.
At veteranaid.org there is a very helpful listing of meaningful ways to celebrate Veterans Day, such as adopting a military family, donating to a veteran’s organization, participating in the two minutes of silence across the country, and participating in the VA’s “Be There” campaign, which is an effort to connect with veterans who are at risk of suicide. We encourage readers to visit the website and participate in a meaningful way. Click HERE.
From the White House – A Proclamation on Veterans Day, 2021
“On Veterans Day, we honor our Nation’s veterans, who have given so much to protect our freedoms and the freedom of others around the globe. They represent the highest ideals of our country. While we can never fully repay the debt we owe these heroes, we will honor their service and provide them the care and support they deserve. We also salute and show gratitude for all who ensure our Armed Forces remain strong, united, and unmatched.
“In respect and recognition of the contributions our veterans and their families, caregivers, and survivors have made to the cause of peace and freedom around the world, the Congress has provided (5 U.S.C. 6103(a)) that November 11 of each year shall be set aside as a legal public holiday to honor our Nation’s veterans.” Read the full proclamation HERE.
In appreciation of all US Military Veterans we offer an inspiring video dedicated to the men and women who served and are now serving our country in all branches of the Armed Forces. We Thank You!
