Though World War I or “The Great War” as it would later be called officially ended on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, actual fighting had ended months earlier on November 11, 1918, when an armistice went into effect between the Allies and Germany.
The 11th of November was originally observed as Armistice Day, but eventually evolved into the current Veterans Day holiday we know in 1954.
Today Consumers is proud to once again honor all of those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces along with those still standing duty, including a couple of our own Consumers co-workers.
Bill M. served in the US Marine Corps and deployed twice to Iraq with his unit. He finished out his service as a Sergeant.
Sam J. has served with the Air National Guard since 2013 and is currently an Airman First Class.
