On this morning 98 years ago, The Great War finally came to a halt. The guns that had first roared in August of 1914 finally fell silent. Although Veterans Day first commemorated this occasion, it is now a day when we recognize all veterans for their service in uniform, whether in combat or peace, and over all branches.
To everyone who has worn our nation's uniform or continues to wear it today, this day is your day for recognition. We all collectively thank you for your service to our country.
