It’s important for us to understand the history of this extremely significant day, so that we can never forget the sacrifices that so many brave men and women have made to keep our country safe and free -- and continue to do so, every single day.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) November 08, 2013
Members of the Editorial Board at Living with a Disability magazine, a full-color print publication that offers articles, advice, insights and tips to help individuals with various disabling medical conditions live life to the fullest, are featuring an important new article by Heard & Smith Veteran Law Attorney Jill Mitchell on the history of Veterans’ Day.
Mitchell’s article begins by highlighting that the origin of Veterans’ Day traces back to 1926, when Congress passed a resolution that the anniversary of the end of World War I – November 11, 1918 – should be commemorated with "exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations." Twelve years later in 1938, November 11 officially became known as Armistice Day, and designated as a Federal holiday dedicated to world peace, and to honor those who participated in the war. Ultimate in 1954, it was officially re-named Veterans’ Day, and became a day honor American veterans of all conflicts.
"Veterans’ Day is a time to pay tribute to all American veterans," commented Living with a Disability’s associate publisher Joshua C. Eyestone. "We’re proud and privileged to feature Jill’s article that summarizes the history of Veterans’ Day. It’s important for us to understand the history of this extremely significant day, so that we can never forget the sacrifices that so many brave men and women have made to keep our country safe and free -- and continue to do so, every single day."
