Alperstein and Diener Salutes our American Servicemembers, Past and Present, on Veterans Day

Mr. Alperstein Military PictureThe firm expresses thanks for the dedication and sacrifice of all members of the armed services and the Department of Defense, especially on this Veterans Day holiday.

A Brief History of Veterans Day

November 11th, 1918 marked the cessation of hostilities in World War I, and though the war did not officially end until the next year, November 11th was declared to be Armistice Day.  Following another World War, and some involvement in Korea, Congress changed the designation to “Veterans Day” in 1954 in tribute to the further sacrifices of our military personnel.
