Engelman Berger thanks all of the veterans that have served our country. We hope everyone takes a moment to pause, reflect, and honor our veterans, appreciating what they have done for the freedoms we enjoy every day.
Veterans Day initially originated from “Armistice Day,” a day highlighting the one-year anniversary of World War I on November 11, 1919. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution declaring Armistice Day a national holiday to be observed annually. Not long after, in 1938, November 11th was declared the official holiday and observance of Armistice Day. Many years later, Congress wished to commemorate veterans of all wars and changed the holiday’s name to Veterans Day in 1954.
