Saluting and Thanking Our Veterans
The eleventh day of the eleventh hour of the eleventh month… the day once regarded as the end of The Great War (World War I), "the war to end all wars," Armistice Day became a day to recognize the accomplishment of the end of the war and to remember all of the brave servicemen and servicewomen who assisted in that triumph. Sadly, WWI was not the war to end all wars, and in the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, the 11th of November became a day to recognize all veterans of all conflicts and times.
Fittingly, on Veterans Day we take a moment to pay tribute and respect to those who have served our country and protected our freedoms through service in the United States Armed Forces: USA, USN, USMC, USAF and USCG.
The debt owed every man and woman who has served our country can never be repaid in full. Their stories and history are woven into the rich and diverse tapestry that defines who we are as a people and a nation. Throughout our proud history as a country, when the times and circumstances demanded that we defend our rights and our freedom or fight for the rights and freedom of others on our soil or across the globe, our military were there to step up and answer the call.
As a nation, we are deeply grateful for the veterans who served our country with great honor in the past, and to those who uphold their duties today. In honor of Veterans Day, I encourage you to take a moment – today, tomorrow or next week – to thank a service member for her or his dedicated service to our country.
On behalf of the entire leadership team, we extend our most sincere appreciation to the brave men and women who serve and have served. An impressive twenty-nine percent (29%) of TransCor employees are proud veterans.
Please join us in saluting and thanking our veterans and their families.
