Thank You Veterans

Veterans Day, formerly Armistice Day, is celebrated every year on November 11th to mark the armistice, or cease fire, between the Allies and Germany on the Western Front of World War I. This armistice took effect on the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918. Most countries changed the name of the holiday from Armistice Day after World War II to honor veterans of that and subsequent conflicts. In the United States, it was renamed All Veterans Day and later shortened to Veterans Day to explicitly honor our military veterans. E.L. Wright would like to THANK all Veterans for your service to our nation, and specifically, the veterans among our faculty and staff: Blake Bare, Darryl Davis, Cynthia Johnson, Nick Jones, Brett Miller, and Barron Williams. Thank you for your service.
