Initially established to celebrate world peace and the end of World War I, Veterans Day has evolved from “Armistice Day” into a national holiday honoring current and former members of the United States Armed Forces who swore an oath to protect our country.
Each year on November 11th, we recognize and honor the millions of men and women who have selflessly answered the call to serve in our nation’s armed forces. Our country’s greatness is built on the foundation of their courage and sacrifice.
On this Veterans Day, let us commit to always remember and honor the contributions made by our nation’s veterans; let us show our appreciation for those who have been willing to risk it all to ensure our nation and our values endure.
To those who have served and those who continue to serve, ACCC wishes you a Happy Veterans Day! We owe you our thanks, but more than that we owe you our freedom. To those who secure our way of life… Thank You for your bravery, your service, and your sacrifice.
“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother and serves, as he best can, the same cause” – Abraham Lincoln
