WoodmenLife Tower is Lighting for Veterans Day

Omaha, Nebr. – Tonight the WoodmenLife Tower will be red, white and blue for Veterans Day and all the selfless Americans who’ve chosen to serve in the military.

According to the VA’s Veterans Day website, the holiday dates back to 1918, when the armistice that ended World War I, the “war to end all wars,” was signed. The following year President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the first commemoration of this day, and it became a legal holiday in 1938. It was renamed from Armistice Day to Veterans Day in the mid-1950s and was expanded to honor American Veterans of all wars. Dig deeper into this part of American history on the VA website.

WoodmenLife will share this on social media with the hashtags #VeteransDay and #LightWoodmenLifeTower.
