Shout Out to Veterans!

Veterans Day is celebrated across America on November 11. This national holiday began in 1919 to commemorate the end of Work War I. It was formerly know as Armistice Day until 1954 when President Eisenhower changed the name in order to honor all veterans. There are over 18 million veterans in the United States, and this holiday serves to applaud them for their service an accomplishments.

United States Veterans

Veterans include men and women who have served in any branch of the armed forces:American Flag hanging in a barn

  • Marines
  • Navy
  • Army
  • Coast Guard

Not all veterans served during a war. In fact, most did not. Veterans are from all walks of life and many different professions. Nine percent of veterans are women. We have veterans living in every single state of the union as well, and the states with the highest number of veterans are California, Texas, and Florida.

Honor and Sacrifice

Why is it important to honor and thank our veterans each year? These men and women, and their families as well, make great sacrifices to defend and support our country. This is true during times of peace and during times of conflict. Those of us at Audubon Orthotic and Prosthetic Services would like to join the rest of our country in saying thank you to all of our veterans.
