Hero WOD - A Day Early
Because Veterans Day falls on Free Trial Thursday, we have to get this one in a day early. Please join us!
Thank You Veterans
Wednesday, we show honor and thanks to all who serve and have served in the Armed Forces. Veterans Day started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country's service, and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. In 1954, the holiday was changed to "Veterans Day" in order to account for all veterans in all wars.
