Remember the real reason for the day off

Ninety-four years ago, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 Armistice Day to remember the end of World War I and the veterans who served our country.

While the holiday is now recognized as Veterans Day, the day’s purpose remains the same: to celebrate and commemorate the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. veterans — both past and present.

So while you and your family enjoy a day off, do not forget the real reason you are able to relax.

Please take a moment to stop and thank a veteran for his or her willingness to serve and sacrifice for the freedoms we all enjoy, or contact your local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post for ways to make a difference in veterans’ lives on

Veterans Day and throughout the year.
