Veterans Day

Taking a Moment to Remember

Aaron Hillebrandt November 11, 2014 Posted in: Blog Posts, General

The original Veterans Day was known as Armistice Day, as it was the very day in 1918 that World War I hostilities came to a close. Armistice Day became a legal holiday in 1938, but it wasn’t until 1954 that it became known as Veterans Day, in order for the holiday to be expanded to not only honor American World War I veterans, but also those American veterans of all wars before and after.

As a United States Marine veteran of two combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom, my thoughts will be with my fellow Marines and my other brothers and sisters in arms this Veterans Day. Perhaps you have a loved one or know a friend, neighbor or coworker that has put on the uniform in order to serve our country. On behalf of Pinnacle, I’d like to ask that you join me and pause for a moment this Veterans Day to honor the sacrifices our American heroes have made to preserve our freedom.
