|In the near future, we will introduce a resolution recognizing November 11, 2021, as Veterans Day in Pennsylvania, honoring all of our Commonwealth’s veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is a federal holiday and celebrated on November 11. Armistice Day recognized the anniversary of the temporary cessation of hostilities declared between the Allied Nations and Germany in World War 1, then known as The Great War. Armistice Day became an official national holiday in the United States in 1938 and was changed to Veterans Day in 1954.
"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices." - Harry S. Truman
Please join us in honoring these brave men and women by sponsoring this resolution. You may direct any questions to Allie Dutrey of my staff at 7-5839. Thank you.
Introduced as SR210
