(PRUnderground) November 11th, 2020

On occasion of Veterans Day, GFA World (www.gfa.org) wishes to thank and honor all the men and women who have made immense sacrifices by serving in the armed forces, including 11 veterans who now work in GFA World’s U.S. headquarters.

While Veterans Day celebrates all the men and women who have served in the armed forces, it especially honors those still living, and about 18.2 million of these men and women served in at least one war.

The holiday dates back to November 11, 1919. Called Armistice Day at the time, it commemorated the armistice of World War I, which was signed on the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” in 1918.

Veterans Day is not only remembered here in the United States; it’s a holiday touching several countries. According to History.com, “Great Britain, France, Australia and Canada also commemorate the veterans of World War I and World War II on or near November 11: Canada has Remembrance Day, while Britain has Remembrance Sunday (the second Sunday of November).”

GFA World staff members are praying today for those who have helped defend our nation.

“Veterans Day is an opportunity to take a moment to stop, reflect and be grateful for those who have laid down their time, health, physical well being and sometimes even their very lives so that we can enjoy the immense freedom we have in this nation,” comments Bishop Danny Yohannan, GFA World Vice President. “As we go about today, let’s remember to say ‘thank you’ to those who have sacrificed for our sake.”
