A Day to Honor Each and Every Veteran
On Veterans Day, we want to remember the work and actions of all of our heroes. So, on this November 11, 2011 Power Ten, Inc. would like to take a moment to say thank you to all of the men and women who have served in the armed forces of the United States.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect. On November 11, 1919, Armistice Day was commemorated for the first time. In 1919, President Wilson proclaimed the day should be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory.” There were plans for parades, public meetings and a brief suspension of business activities at 11am.
