Today, November 11, 2014, is the continuation of a celebration began in 1919 as Armistice Day, enacted by President Woodrow Wilson, which has later become the more widely known Veterans Day. The first such celebration was the one year celebration of the end of World War I.
Today, we ask the greater DuBois area and our members within to honor a veteran past or present, living or dead, by simply commenting their name in response to this article with the conflict they served in parenthesis afterwards.
We owe a great deal to our service members and this day is set aside in their honor. This small token is what we hope to make tradition going forward.
