Veteran's Day

by The Rullo Team

On this Veterans Day, let us remember the tremendous service and sacrifice of our veterans; and let us never forget our national promise to fulfill the sacred obligation  to our veterans and their families, and though there is only one day a year solely dedicated to honoring our veterans, let not a single day pass that we forget the sacrifice these countrymen have made, to protect and defend our freedom and country.  

From the bottom of our hearts and with eternal gratitude; Thank You to all who have served this great nation!

World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.” In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day. On June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars and the name was changed to ‘Veterans Day”.  For a few years, from 1971 to 1977, Veterans day was observed on a Monday in order to ensure a three day weekend for federal employees, but due to confusion (many states continued to observe the holiday on the original date) and the fact that this day is a matter of historic and patriotic significance to a great number of our citizens, it was decided that Veterans Day would be observed on November 11 regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. The restoration of the observance of Veterans Day to November 11 not only preserves the historical significance of the date, but helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
