Black In Government National President The Honorable Dr. Doris P. Sartor 

         The First 120 Days in Office:  Focused. Engaged. Responsive

As I’ve traveled to agencies and chapters throughout the country over
these past four months, speaking at various events and interacting with
agency and government leaders, I have been so elated and encouraged
by their recognition and respect for Blacks In Government as the single
civil rights organization whose sole objective is the preservation and
enhancement of Black civil servants. I am also so very honored to
represent such a prestigious membership and serve side by side
with the dedicated members of the National Executive Committee,
National Board of Directors, as well as such committed, organized
and focused Regional Council and Chapter Presidents; and our BIG members.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!
 
On this Veterans Day, Blacks In Government salutes our Veterans and extend our gratitude for their service. They are our members, relatives, friends, neighbors and co-workers. These individuals committed to a cause larger than their own and accepted the challenge to defend our Nation.
Our Veterans put everything on the line to protect our freedom. We may never be able to repay them for their sacrifice, but we can show them just how much we appreciate all that they've done. Everyone can do something to let Veterans know how much we appreciate their service.
                            Visit http://www.blogs.va.gov/VAntage/veterans-day/

It takes great courage for a soldier to risk life and limb for his/her country and as civilians we must honor these heroes. This is the basis of the Veterans Day celebration.
 
Honor these great men and women with words of appreciation.
 
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

                                      The History of Veterans Day
 
November 11, or what has come to be known as Veterans Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor Armistice Day - the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. President Woodrow Wilson honored the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations..."

In 1954, Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, struck out the word "Armistice" and inserted the word "Veterans." With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, November 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Between 1968 and 1975, Veterans Day was moved around on the calendar, sometimes even appearing on the last Monday of October. Finally on September 20, 1975, President Gerald R. Ford signed a law which returned the annual observance of Veterans Day to its original date of November 11, beginning in 1978.

Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. The restoration of the observance of Veterans Day to November 11 not only preserves the historical significance of the date, but helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
