Honoring Those Who’ve Given So Much

With today being the day we observe Veterans Day, we thought it was an appropriate time to honor those who’ve given so much for our freedom. As your Lake of the Ozarks attorney, we want to take some time to feature the history of Veterans Day and a few of the ways you can honor this holiday. Take a look below to learn more about this special holiday honoring veterans, provided by O’Donnell Law Center.

The History of Veteran’s Day:

Originally known as Armistice Day, this holiday was established on November 11th of 1919 – the first anniversary of the end of World War 1. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution to observe this holiday annually. Later it became a national holiday in 1938. In 1968, President Eisenhour officially changed the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day. Aside from common belief, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans – living or those who’ve passed. This day celebrates and gives thanks to veterans who have served their country during war and peaceful times.

How We Celebrate Today:

Many schools will host Veterans Day ceremonies. At these events kids will gather to honor and celebrate our veterans. During these ceremonies, children will usually have a school project that focuses around this holiday which will be on display. Sometimes a local veteran will give a speech during these ceremonies. It’s a great experience for all in attendance. Another way to celebrate veterans is with a parade. Osage Beach hosted its 5th Annual Parade on November 10th.  Many local restaurants offer free meals for veterans on this holiday, as well. It’s a great way to get out and honor local veterans in our community!


Now that you know a little more about the history of this important holiday, you’re ready to make plans to honor local veterans. There are a number of Veterans Day celebrations and events throughout the Lake of the Ozarks. How are you planning to honor those who’ve given so much? Our Lake of the Ozarks law center will be closed to allow our staff to honor veterans of our great country.
