The war to end all wars, World War I, saw its official end via a declaration of armistice that went into effect at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month–November 11, 1918. One year later, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as Armistice Day; it was declared a legal holiday in 1938 and renamed Veterans Day in 1954 to honor all military veterans. It is one of the few national holidays still recognized on its original date rather than the nearest Monday, to pay homage to the significance of the exact day.
The parking & mobility industry has long recognized military veterans, both in local communities and more recently, with the establishment of an official group to connect veterans with careers. We at IPMI are honored to know, work with, and recognize our military veterans. Today especially, we thank you.
