Today, November 11th, everyone at Calcagno & Rossi Vein Treatment Center in Mechanicsburg, PA, salutes our veterans and their service, dedication and sacrifices to our country.
Our parents and grandparents are among those brave men and women of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard who put their lives at risk to ensure our freedom.
Did you know that Veteran’s Day was first observed in 1938 as Armistice Day to honor the soldiers who served our country during World War I? And did you know that November 11th was chosen as the special day because that war ended exactly at 11 am on 11.11.1918?
Following World War II and the Korean War, this holiday was renamed as Veterans Day to include the soldiers that had fought in these two battles. Today, it incorporates all veterans of all wars and conflicts that keep America safe. Again, we salute our veterans!
