11:00 a.m. on November 11, 1918 marked the end of hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany, ending World War I. In 1926, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution declaring November 11th “Armistice Day,” creating an official holiday to honor the veterans of WWI.
In 1954, after U.S. soldiers, sailors Marines and airmen fought in World War II and Korea, Congress changed the name of the holiday to “Veterans Day,” to honor American veterans of all wars, and to recognize their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
Martucci Law joins all Americans in honoring and remembering those brave men and women who have served our country in the armed forces, so that we can remain safe and free at home.
Please continue to support and care for the needs of our veterans after they have returned home.
