Thank You for Your Service

To the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine and Coast Guard veterans and current personnel:

Thank you to all of you who have served in our armed forces to keep our freedom intact. You have our respect and support.

Retired Army 1st Sgt. William Staude, of Elliott, Pa., salutes the Colors being carried by Soldiers from the 316th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, stationed in Coraopolis, Pa., as they march past him during the Veterans Day parade in downtown Pittsburgh, Nov. 11.

The reason we celebrate Veterans Day on November 11 is because this is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Originally called Armistice Day, it was changed to Veteran’s Day in 1938. This is a day we should all celebrate the soldiers who are still alive and served in the forces at anytime, during peace or war.

From everyone at EXAIR – Thank you.
