Today America honors its military veterans for their patriotism, commitment, and sacrifice while serving in the armed forces. Veterans Day has been a national holiday since 1938, and was originally named Armistice Day to commemorate the end of World War I combat. The name was changed to Veterans Day in 1954 to recognize all veterans, not just those who served in World War I. Official ceremonies for Veterans Day center around the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington Cemetery, where the bodies of soldiers who valiantly fought and gave their lives during combat are interred. Officers in full military uniform stand guard over the tomb and give a salute to commemorate the sacrifice of these fallen heroes, while living veterans are recognized for their past contributions. Here at America’s Job Exchange, we are extremely thankful for all that the Veterans have done in service to our country. We support the brave people in uniform who risk their lives each day so that we have the chance to live in a better world. At America’s Job Exchange, we try to give back to these individuals by providing them with the tools to get back into the workforce and further themselves in a career of their choice. Along with a recent partnership with Corporate Gray, a leading job transition site for members of the armed forces, AJE’s own “Military Center” provides the Veteran community with a place to search for jobs where employers are looking to hire veteran candidates. Our efforts to help companies reach out to veterans with through our job distribution services have also helped in these efforts. This is the least we can do to say “thank you” for all the sacrifices these veterans have made during their course of duty.
Happy Veterans’ Day from the America’s Job Exchange Team
