A year after the end of World War I in 1918, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 to be Armistice Day: ''To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.''
In 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation's history; and after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress changed ''Armistice Day'' to ''Veterans Day.'' Thus on June 1, 1954, did November 11th become a day to honor American veterans of all wars.
Operation Warrior Wellness is proud to recognize and honor our active military and veterans of all wars on this Veterans Day 2012.
