A Veterans Day Message

By | In the News

Formerly known as Armistice Day, Veterans Day was originally established as a U.S. holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially ended on November 11, 1918. In 1954, after both World War II and the Korean War, the U.S. Congress changed the word “Armistice” to “Veterans,” and Nov. 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Veterans Day is a day for us to stand united to respect and honor the patriotism and sacrifice of those who have served our country. “Thank you for your service.”  As citizens who enjoy great freedom and security as a result of our nation’s strong military, many Americans express their gratitude when they see a Service Member in uniform.  How do we honor the veterans – those who served their country with valor and are now separated from the Armed Forces and who don’t wear their uniforms anymore?  New Hampshire has the 8th highest veteran population per-capita in the country.  How and when do we thank them?

2018 Nashua SOS Gala

The Nashua Telegraph — The 7th annual Nashua Salute Our Soldiers Gala Saturday evening at the Sky Meadow Country Club honored the many men and women protecting the nation’s freedoms.

This was the first year the event was hosted at Sky Meadow, which was decked out with red, white and blue lights and table arrangements honoring the many men and women who have and continue to serve in the military. Vice Chair of the Nashua Chapter and gala chair Carolann Constant said the event is spearheaded by Sy Mahfuz and Tom Tessier. They were among the original chapter members, she said.

“It’s a program that basically fills the needs of any veteran or family member of a veteran that no other service can take care of,” Constant said. “Our care coordinators, they’re the most important part of the program, will speak with a veteran and find out what their need is and, if it’s something that there is a service out there for, like with the VA, they’ll connect them with the appropriate department in the VA that can help them. So, a lot of the times, money isn’t even a factor. It’s more of getting the veterans connected with the right services.” Read More
