Honoring our Veterans!

Posted about 7 years ago by Jean Aertker

“Veterans Day” is Sunday November 11, 2012, a holiday to honor all those who served in theU.S.military. Following the lead of AANP promoting “Joining Forces” to support military members and their families, FNPN will be highlighting stories of several NPs and NP groups involved in supporting this mission. We thank all Nurse Practitioners serving in the military, all nurse veterans and also our colleagues who work at VA Hospitals serving our veterans. It was first called Armistice Day, commemorating the end of World War I in 1919. Later it became a national holiday by an act of Congress in 1938. After World War II it became clear that the World War I armistice marked only the ending of World War I, not of WAR itself. In 1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill designating November 11 as Veterans Day. Fly our Flag proudly this day and thank a veteran!
