Veterans Day

Veterans day is a federal holiday in honor of those who have served for our country. 

President Woodrow Wilson declared November 11, 1919 as Armistice Day, a day that would be in remembrance of those who died in service. 

In 1945, Raymond Weeks, a veteran of World War ll pushed for making November 11 a holiday for all veterans.

On June 1, 1954, Congress replaced Armistice with Veterans.

Centel Media™ would like to recognize all of our veterans and give thanks for all they have done for our country
