What it means to be a Veteran varies as much as our stories. The one thing that does not vary is the Honor, Integrity, Respect, Bravery, Love of Country and the Love of our brothers and sisters in arms all Veterans have.

It is a time to remember our stories and share them with fellow Veterans and our families. It is also a time where many of us remember our fallen brothers and sisters. To remember the good and bad times of our tours. To take stalk of the things we are grateful for and the sacrifices we were willing to do for our country.

Veterans Day officially started off as Armistice Day when the Great War also known as World War I came to an end with a temporary cessation of hostilities. The cessation went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is regarded as the end of the “war to end all wars.” Armistice day was to honor the Veterans of World War I. On May 13, 1938, An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U.S. Code, Sec 87a) made November 11 a legal holiday. It was not until June 1, 1954 after World War II and the Korean War that Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out “Armistice” and inserting “Veterans” that all Veterans no matter what war or conflict they served in are honored.

i3 Global wants to recognize all Veterans and their sacrifices for their love of country. The following are i3 Global’s Veterans and we wanted to extend an additional Thank You to them.
