Honoring Veterans on Veterans DayRequest a Free Consultation
From Ceasefire to Celebration
Veterans Day stands as a sacred tribute to the men and women who have donned the uniform of our armed forces, an emblem of honor that displays the sacrifices made in service to our nation. Originally known as Armistice Day, this commemoration was born from the armistice signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, marking the end of World War I. It was a moment of profound significance, a cease-fire that echoed across the trenches and signaled the dawn of peace.
As time unfurled, Armistice Day transformed into Veterans Day, expanding its scope to honor all veterans, and recognizing the enduring valor displayed in conflicts spanning generations. Today, this day stands as a testament to the resilience, dedication, and bravery etched into the annals of our military history.
Honoring Local Veterans
Veterans Day is a time of celebration and remembrance, and it is a time to consider giving to those who served our nation. Veterans Homes are great institutes to make donations to, whether it be monetary donations, essential personal hygiene items, volunteering your time, or writing special cards.
This Veterans Day, our Grungo Law Office in Vineland wanted to make a local impact. In addition to making a donation that helps ensure residents’ needs are met, our firm sponsored two bingo events. We also purchased $300 of items ranging from individually wrapped snack favorites, personal clothing essentials, puzzles, a shuffleboard table, and festive crafts to help residents get into the holiday spirit.
