A Veteran’s Day Message from our President and CEO November 11, 2018

From:  John Barnett,
President and CEO – Reed City Group
One hundred years ago today, on the morning of November 11, 1918, after four years of war, Allied and German powers met in Rethondes, France to sign an armistice that halted the hostilities of World War I. The agreement was signed shortly after 5:00 a.m. and went into effect at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, finally bringing to an end the carnage of the Great War—the war thought by many to be the war that would end all wars.

A year later, Veterans Day (at that time called Armistice Day) was proclaimed by Woodrow Wilson and 3 years later the United States Congress officially set aside November 11 as a federal holiday.

I want to take this time to express our gratitude to all who have served this magnificent country through the Armed Services.  The countless sacrifices you and your families have made to protect our liberty and defend this great nation is immeasurable.  The enduring strength of our great nation is a testament to your service.  Today, the folks at Reed City Group honor you with heartfelt gratitude.

Happy Veterans Day.
