Veterans Day is a time to remember and a time to give thanks. It’s a time to appreciate all of those who have served honorably in the military during times of war and during times of peace.
As always, we here at the OWC Blog (and across the entire company) would like to take the opportunity to gratefully acknowledge our veterans for serving our country and helping to preserve the freedom we all too often take for granted.
OWC is proud to have several veterans among its ranks and have several whose loved ones have served in the armed forces. The dedication and service to the founding principles of our country is an overwhelming example to all.
It is important to recognize that today’s world would be a different one without the service and sacrifices of all our service men and women. So today we thank all of our veterans – those that served and thankfully are still with us, and those that served and offered the ultimate sacrifice. OWC salutes!
The American Flag just before sunrise today in Woodstock
OWC is closed today in honor and recognition of Memorial Day. In service to these United States of America, thousands have given their lives protecting and preserving that Freedom and Liberty for which she stands. Today we honor and commemorate our fallen with parades, speeches, and family observances.
This solemn day of remembrance was originally designated in 1868 to be recognized each year on the 30th of May. In 1971 Congress passed legislation to change the recognized day to instead fall on the last Monday of each May, effectively making it part of a three-day weekend. With respect to what this day is about, I do believe and without regard to a weekend or last Monday of a month, that this 1971 legislation should be undone. A great source of information on this important day and its history is the website www.USMemorialDay.org. Article Continues…
