THANK YOU to our Veterans and Active Duty Armed Forces!

Raine wants to say THANK YOU to all Veterans and Active Duty Armed Forces for serving our country.  We appreciate all you do for our freedom.
When did Veterans Day begin?
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as “the Great War.” Celebrated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938.  Following World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.
