Veteran's Day is coming up before the next union meeting in November. Please thank a Veteran for his or her service to our country. Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, that is the day the Allies of the World and Germany signed the Armistice on the 11 hour of the 11 day of the 11 month in 1918 to end World War I.
Veterans Day is the only federal holiday not celebrated on Monday per the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968. The Armed Forces observe both Veteran's Day and the Marine Corps birthday 10/10/1775 together as a 96 hour liberty period.
Please thank a Veteran for their service and the freedoms we enjoy because of them. -Jim Murty, ABM West IBEW Local 97
