Happy Veterans Day

Happy Veterans Day! We are so lucky to be able to assist the servicemen who live at Bel Aire Senior Living. Today is the day that we get to honor those who put their life on the line so we could live freely. At Bel Aire Senior Living, we currently have 8 War Veterans and are so thankful for their service.

November 11th remained in the public imagination as the date that marked the end of the Great War. In November 1918, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day. American effort during World War II (1941-1945) saw the greatest mobilization of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force in the nation’s history (more than 16 million people); some 5.7 million more served in the Korean War (1950 to 1953).

Here are some videos that we loved to watch to help us celebrate Veterans Day! Click here for videos.
