Remember our Veterans

Veterans Day, originally called Armistice Day, was a federal holiday meant to be as a remembrance of the soldiers who fought and died in the First World War. Americans celebrated the day on November 11th, this was meant to coincide with the surrender of the Germans which occurred on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month on 1918. In 1953, an Emporia, Kansas man named Alvin King, the owner of a shoe repair shop, had the idea to change Armistice Day to “All” Veteran’s Day.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Sure, the basic design has been proven, some would go so far as to say perfected.
