We here at BangShift.com would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of the veterans who have served our country through the years. The sacrifice of time, sweat, and blood have preserved our way of life and our ability to enjoy the benefits and freedoms that only America can offer.
We hope that all of our readers join us in thanking veterans today and every day for all that they have done on our behalf. We have made it a point for the last several years to extend our hand in thanks to any person in uniform we see while traveling or elsewhere. It is a little thing, but we certainly realize that these men and women don’t hear that sentiment nearly enough.
Veterans Day was first celebrated in 1918 as Armistice Day to recognize the ending of World War One. It was Dwight Eisenhower in 1954 who changed the holiday to Veterans Day, observing the heroic efforts of military service members in our country to that point and going forward.
Thanks to all who have served and are currently serving. Our own Bryan McTaggart is a veteran of the United States Army. Know that we appreciate your sacrifice, service, and dedication to our country and to keeping us all safe!
