Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one glorious day, we are joined together around the nation to stand united in respect for our veterans.
This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service, and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to account for all veterans in all wars.
As Doty Machine Works joins in, to honor our country and our veteran’s today we give you the opportunity to express gratitude for their sacrifice.
