Veterans Day

By November 7, 2018 No Comments

Veterans Day, 2018, marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.  The Veterans Administration released this image in honor of the event:

Hostilities in the first world war ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.  Subsequently, November 11 was called “Armistice Day” for many years in the United States, becoming known as “Veterans Day” in 1954.  Of interest, there is no apostrophe in the spelling of “Veterans Day” – because according to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Day does not belong to veterans, but is instead a day to honor all veterans.

All of us at Enertech wish for the safe return of military loved ones deployed near and far.

Enertech would like to take this moment to honor not only all veterans, but also our “Enertech” veterans.
