ExpressACA Cares: Veterans Day

We at SPAN Enterprises, parent company of ExpressACAForms, would like to take a break from telling you about the wonders that are the Affordable Care Act forms by dedicating this blog post to Veterans Day and extending our deepest gratitudes to those who have served and who continue to serve.

On June 28, 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed that officially ended World War I, the war to end all wars (or so we thought). However, the fighting actually ended seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary ceasefire, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. A year later, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day.

On May 13, 1938, the 11th of November was made into a legal holiday, a day to be dedicated each year to the cause of world peace, known as Armistice Day. Armistice Day was primarily set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen in the nation’s history; after American forces fought aggression in Korea, the Act of 1938 was amended by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.”

Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. Not to be confused with Memorial Day, a day to remember those who gave their lives while serving, Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans. It is a day to say thank you to those who have risked - and still risk - their lives when their country needed them.
