November 11th is Veterans Day. It’s a day to honor United States’ veterans of all conflicts for their patriotism and willingness to serve. Veterans Day was originally established to honor Americans who had served in World War I. Since then, it has become a national holiday that is celebrated on November 11, the anniversary of the day World War I ended in 1918.
Many people will celebrate the holiday by attending special events that honor those who have served in the military. Some will attend events in their local communities. Others will travel to the nation’s capital for the observance at Arlington National Cemetery.
For the Veterans, it’s a family reunion of sorts. They roll up on motorcycles, in wheelchairs, taxicabs, and city busses. They shuffle with canes, with limps, and with pride. Many come wearing their uniform of service with the emblems of their military units. They come accompanied by family, by friends and by the memories of their time served.
The Accellion team would like to say thank you to the military family that has served honorably to protect the rights and liberties of this great nation. We owe a debt of gratitude that words alone cannot express.
