National Veterans Day Restaurant Discounts For Drivers with Military Service

November 10, 2016 Comments Off on National Veterans Day Restaurant Discounts For Drivers with Military Service

In the United States, October through January is “holiday season.” And while Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas get most of the fanfare, one of the most meaningful national holidays – Veterans Day – is not to be overlooked in its significance. Originally known as Armistice Day when it began in 1919, Veterans Day occurs every November 11th – the anniversary of the signing of the armistice between the Allied Nations and Germany that ushered the end of World War I.  In 1954, President Eisenhower signed legislation that changed the name of the holiday to Veterans Day to honor veterans of all wars.
