VETERANS DAY – November 11th
Veterans Day is a day to say “Thank You” to all who so selflessly gave and give by serving their country. Thank You to the families who suffer proudly while their loved ones are far from home serving their country. According to the National Veterans Affairs, this is the 99th year the nation has celebrated and remembered those who have served in uniform! It was first know as Armistice Day 98 years ago. It has been known as Veterans Day since 1954. The Department is broadening the tradition to observe the month of November with appreciation to both Veterans and Military Families.
On November 1, 2017, it was proclaimed the month of November as National Veterans and Military Families Month. An excerpt of the proclamation states,
“It is our patriotic duty to honor veterans and military families. As part of our efforts to answer President Lincoln’s charge to care for those who have “borne the battle,” I have asked the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to lead the Nation in a month of observances across the country to honor our veterans.”
To all of our men and women in uniform and their families, past and present,
The Team at Lakeland Unique Pools, Spas & More Thanks and salutes you all!
