At Ozark Regional Vein Center in Rogers, Arkansas, we want to salute all U.S. veterans for their service to our country.
Because we have dozens of male and female veterans of all ages as patients in our office, we value what they’ve done to secure our freedom.
Nearly 100 years ago — in November 1919 -– President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day by saying: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
Originally, Veterans Day was a day to celebrate. It was observed with parades, public meetings and a brief suspension of business beginning at 11:00 a.m. on 11/11. Nearly 7 years later, on June 4, 1926, the U.S. Congress officially recognized the end of World War I when it passed a concurrent resolution recognizing the sacrifices made by our veterans.
Today, Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it actually falls.
