In 1954 President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day. He called upon Americans everywhere to rededicate themselves to the cause of peace. President John F. Kennedy echoed that sentiment when he said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” On this Veterans Day, we honor the commitment American veterans have shown to the cause of freedom and the progress of peace.
