Veterans Day is largely an occasion when we take the time to recognize and honor living veterans for their sacrifices; it is a day that we honor all those who have served our country whether in war or peace time. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Armistice Day, as it was originally called, in 1919 on the first anniversary of the end of World War I.

Although every day is a good day to thank a veteran, on this special day we honor and thank every veteran who has left their family to protect our country and our freedoms. Kairos encourages you to honor the service of veterans in your family, workforce, and community.
