Tomorrow, we honor the courage and sacrifice of our veterans who faithfully served and continue to serve our nation.
Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day, commemorating the agreement to end World War I. However, on June 1, 1954 the holiday was changed by Congress to acknowledge all veterans during and after World War I.
This Veterans Day, let us remember the blessings we enjoy because of the sacrifices made by our veterans. We also extend our gratitude and prayers for the families of veterans. Let us continue to pray and work toward the vision of peace, freedom, and human flourishing for which these men and women fought.
To all the veterans in our Eastern Community and nation who served and sacrificed for our peace and freedom, thank you.
Ronald A. Matthews, D.M.A.
