Coldwell Banker Thanks Our Veterans

by Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty, Inc. on November 11, 2009

Veteran’s Day is an annual American holiday honoring our military veterans. It was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor Armistice Day, the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislature that was passed in 1938, November 11 was “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day’. This new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.

In 1954, after World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting the word “Veterans”.

United States Senate Resolution 143, which was passed on August 4, 2001, designated the week of November 11 through November 17, 2001, as “National Veterans Awareness Week”. The resolution calls for education efforts directed at elementary and secondary school students concerning the contribution and sacrifices of veterans.

We thank you for your service to our country and remember the sacrifices of our American veterans.
