Veterans Day is a special holiday here at Sharn, not only do we think about all of those men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, but we support the past and present employees that we have working for us for their sacrifice and service to our country. Not to mention, our very own President, Roger Wandersee is a Veteran.
In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11th as Armistice Day. In 1938, Armistice Day became a federal holiday, and in 1954 President Eisenhower signed a bill to change the name of Armistice Day to Veterans Day to include all U.S. Veterans.
Tomorrow November 12th, Wandersee will be participating in the Veteran’s entrepreneurial boot camp at Governors State University, which is a program specifically for Veterans who want to start their own business.
Last year, Roger was asked, “What does Veterans Day mean to you?”
“My father was an air force pilot during World War II and flew a B29 Bomber. My uncles served during the Korean War and my brother served in the Army during the Vietnam conflict. I served in the USAR for six years as a teaching medic, so the military is a part of my family’s history and I honor all those who have served.”
As a proud American manufacturer, we here at Sharn honor all those who are currently serving and those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Thank you for your service.
