VETERANS DAY 2014

 

Veterans Day serves as a powerful reminder that freedom comes at a cost, paid for with courage, valor, and sacrifice. No nation in the history of the world has ever done more, or given more, in the defense of freedom than the United States and its citizens.

Today is a day when we pause to remember the sacrifice of our fellow citizens - those individuals who answered the call to serve their country. These brave men and women have guarded our shores and our liberties for hundreds of years and we owe them our utmost thanks and enduring gratitude.

Honor Veterans on Tuesday, Senator Farley Notes History Behind Holiday

State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I - Schenectady) reminds constituents that Tuesday, November 11th, is Veterans Day.

"Veterans Day essentially dates back to November 11, 1919. On that day, our nation first observed Armistice Day. This holiday sought to remember and celebrate the end of World War I, which occurred in 1918 on the eleventh day of the eleventh month on the eleventh hour. That is why many people observe a moment of silence at 11 a.m. In 1954, Armistice Day was re-designated as Veterans Day to honor and remember the sacrifices of all the men and women who have served our country in the military," Senator Farley said.
