Happy Veterans Day

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.

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. In 1938, a Congressional Act was signed into place to recognize Armistice Day,  a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace. It was changed to Veteran’s Day in 1954. This is a day we should celebrate all the current soldiers and civilians who served in the forces at anytime, during peace or war.

From everyone at EXAIR – Thank you.
