Senator Farley Notes Monday Is Veterans Day

State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I - Schenectady) reminds constituents that Monday, 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.
