On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, we pay tribute to those who have honorably served in the military – both during wartime and peacetime. The observance dates back to 1919 when President Woodrow Wilson named November 11 Armistice Day – marking the armistice signed between the Allies and Germany at Compiegne, France. In 1938, November 11 became a legal holiday. In 1954, Armistice Day legally became Veterans Day. There are approximately 22 million veterans – about 7 percent of the U.S. population.
We honor the service of our veterans by offering them a discount on their stay at the Shepherd Mountain Inn.
