Thank You to Our Veterans!

Today is Veterans Day, and I'd like to extend a heart-felt THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH to all our veterans who have served our country. Your service and sacrifices are deeply appreciated, and never forgotten. Thank you for all you have done to keep our country safe and free. Heroes like you are an inspiration to those of us back home. So thank you for your service!

Veterans Day dates back to 1919, when President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day, the date on which an armistice was signed to end the fighting in World War I. The official end to the war came later, on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, but because the fighting had ceased on November 11th that date became generally accepted as the end to the war. Here is an excellent source for information on the history of Veterans Day in the US. And if you know anyone who has served in our military, or happen to meet a veteran today, please take a moment to thank them for serving. You just might make their day!

Zestfully yours,
Carolina Sauce Company
