Happy Veterans Day to all of our service members, past and present. Your dedication and service to our nation is never forgotten.

At the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month, November 11th 1918, the Allies formally declared an armistice with their final adversary, Germany. The other members of the Central Powers, Bulgaria, Austria-Hungary, and the soon to be dismantled Ottoman Empire had previously signed separate armistices with the Allies. After four years the war that had been known as both the “Great War”, and “the war to end all wars”, was over. The U.S. had joined the fighting relatively late into the war, our contribution was no less appreciated by the already bloodied Allies.

While Armistice Day, known now as Remembrance Day in Commonwealth nations, is still celebrated in Europe today, it would take the U.S. more than thirty years for the day to take its present form as Veterans Day.

In 1926 Congress adopted a resolution requesting President Coolidge to make yearly addresses calling on Americans to observe and celebrate the day.

The name first came into being in 1945 when a WWII veteran, Raymond Weeks, from Birmingham Alabama, first proposed that the day should encompass all U.S. veterans. He led a delegation to encourage Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to petition for the idea. While it did not gain traction then, Weeks held the first unofficial Veterans Day celebration in Birmingham AL, on November 11, 1947. In 1954, U.S. Representative Edward Rees proposed the bill that would make Armistice Day into Veterans Day. It was signed by then President Eisenhower that same year. Raymond Weeks was awarded the Presidential Citizenship Medal by President Ronald Reagan in 1982. Having celebrated Veterans Day annually since 1947, Weeks would pass in 1985 knowing that he’d be remembered as the “Father of Veterans Day”.

Bring it Home Campaign: Interview with Maj. Gen. David Conboy

MEMORIAL DAY SAFETY MESSAGE

Annually, 30% or more of the fatal accidents suffered by the Army Reserve occur in the brief time between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Typically, these deaths occur at a time and place totally unrelated to military duty. All too often, accident investigation reveals these deaths were fully preventable.

With 90% of Army Reserve fatal accidents occurring away from duty (e.g. outside direct command and control), the application of basic soldiering skills to manage risk is a critical countermeasure.

Cars, motorcycles and water are the Top 3 killers of Troop Program Unit (TPU) Soldiers who are not in a duty status. These are familiar dangers, dangers that are successfully controlled during Military training and mission. And, just
like they do on duty, Soldiers at home possess the skill and ability to manage these killers to acceptable risk levels!

Maj. Gen. David Conboy, U.S. Army Reserve Command deputy commanding general for operations, answers questions regarding the Bring it Home safety campaign.

Fellow Soldiers, Family members and 201st PCH friends, we want to hear from you. Father's Day is quickly approaching and we would like to promote the great fathers in the Army Reserve to the national media. If you know an Army Reserve father with a unique and interesting story, we want to know about it.

A couple of examples includes a father deployed with his daughter
or son, or a father deployed with his spouse while their small children are back home. Please send your ideas, the Soldier's entire name, unit, current geographical location and phone number/DSN number (if possible) to the following email address: [email protected].
