Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for our Veterans. It is a federal holiday in the U.S observed annually on November 11, for honoring military veterans, who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
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” to account for all veterans in all wars.
Ateki, a Veteran-owned IT company, is always happy to support our Service Members! Whether it’s assisting with neighborhood veteran centered events or donating to the local VFW, we like showing our former soldier’s great support.
