The History of Veterans Day
Veterans Day started as a celebration of the end of World War I. The war officially ended on June 28, 1919 when the Treaty of Versailles was signed, but the fighting actually ended seven months earlier when a temporary cessation of hostilities between the allied nations and Germany went into effect on November 11, 1918. This date is generally regarded as the end of "the war to end all wars." In 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with this quote: "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..."
Join us this weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks for the 1st Annual Veterans Day Parade! Whether you participate in the parade with a float of your own or just cheer on the entrants as they go by, the parade is a way for each of us to say thank you to all those who have served. As your Lake of the Ozarks mortgage lender, I would love the opportunity to help those veterans with a VA Loan. If you or someone you know could benefit from a VA Loan at the Lake of the Ozarks, please give me a call at 573-746-7211 or send an email to email@example.com.
