Happy Veterans Day

Happy Veterans Day! Today and every day, IUOE Local 877 honors the bravery and strength of our country’s veterans.

Originally dubbed “Armistice Day,” November 11 commemorated the end of World War I, largely considered “the war to end all wars.” After World War II and the Korean War, at the urging of veterans service organizations, Congress changed the word “armistice” to “veterans” so the day would honor American veterans of all wars.

We hope you observe this holiday as it was meant to be, a celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

To the service members of our past and present—thank you for your dedication and service to our country.
