Pictured above:

All-Star Insurance wants to thank all the Veterans who served our great country so valiantly.

 

Here’s some information I found that I’d like to share.

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans.  It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.  Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

 

This is why the ceremony commences precisely at 11:00 a.m. with a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving.
