Today is a celebration of our military veterans. It is both a solemn and joyous day - a continuation of the commemoration of Armistice Day, marking the end of hostilities in the first World War. Although that “war to end all wars” was not, in fact, the end, it was the beginning of a continuing respect and gratitude for the American military veteran.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially proclaimed November 11 as Veterans Day in 1954 with the following words:
….On that day let us solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who fought so valiantly, on the seas, in the air, and on foreign shores, to preserve our heritage of freedom, and let us reconsecrate ourselves to the task of promoting and enduring peace so that their efforts shall not have been in vain….
CANA Advisors honors all veterans today, 11 November 2020, and we try to dedicate ourselves to that obligation throughout the year.
To that end, we are so very honored to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a #HIREVets Medallion Award recipient, for a commitment to attract and retain veterans to the workforce. We take this recognition seriously. CANA celebrates this Veterans’ Day knowing the entire nation has immense pride in, and admiration for, our American military veterans.
