Linda Craft & Team would like to thank everything our veteran’s have done for our country! We truly are appreciative. Monday, November 11th is the official US holiday honoring armed service veteran’s and is so much more than a day off from work and school!
Monday coincides with Remembrance Day in Europe and other parts of the world that marks the signing of the Armistice ending WWI. The Armistice was signed on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. Woodrow Wilson announced a national holiday of Armistice day in 1919 and was later changed in 1954 to the Veteran’s day we know today!
Many people get confused of the difference between Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day in May. Memorial Day is a day to remember all who have died while serving our country while Veteran’s Day celebrate service of all US military veterans.
The city of Raleigh is proudly celebrating veterans with a parade on Saturday November 10th. The parade starts at 9:30 AM and goes between Fayetteville Street and Davie Street in downtown Raleigh. There will also be a wreath laying ceremony at 11:00 AM on the North side of the NC Capitol grounds. The theme this year is “Welcome Home Iraq Veterans!” Surely to be an amazing event, come join us in celebrating all of our veterans not only in Raleigh but across the country!
Please take the time this weekend to thank our local and national veterans for all they have done for us!
