In recognition of Veterans Day, we are pleased to share a post from 2014 written by one of Pinnacle’s veterans, Principal and Consulting Actuary Aaron Hillebrandt.
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 purpose of 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. On behalf of Pinnacle, I’d like to ask that you join me and pause for a few moments this Veterans Day to think about our American heroes, perhaps including a loved one or a coworker, who have sacrificed in war.
