Editorial: Veterans Day is a time for a thank you

Email

Today is Veterans Day, a time to pause, reflect and remember all of the U.S. veterans past and present.

Veterans Day originated in 1919 on the first anniversary of the “Armistice Day” that ended World War I. Originally, the effort called for two minutes of the suspension of business at 11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month noting the end of the war.

In 1954, Nov. 11 was renamed Veterans Day, following the Korean War.
