On July 28th 1914, one shot became a catalyst for one the largest and bloodiest conflicts the world has ever seen. For four long years stretching from Europe to the Middle East young men fought in the worst conditions imaginable and against deadly new weapons. From machine guns to poison gas young men sacrificed their lives and bodies in service of their country. However, on November 11th 1918 the last shot was fired and the front became quiet. An armistice was signed that day ceasing all military operations on the frontline. This Armistice marked the end of hostilities and lead to the end of the Great War. On November 1919 about a year after the armistice President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11th as Armistice Day in order to remember the men who sacrificed their lives fighting in World War 1. Fast forward to 1954 and Armistice Day was officially changed to Veterans Day by President Eisenhower. Today American citizens regard Veterans Day as a time to reflect and remember those who have lost their lives in past and present military operations. As citizens we are indebted to our veterans knowing that they have volunteered to risk their lives and wellbeing for the sake of their country. However, in addition, our veterans have made personal sacrifices for the betterment of the United States. For some they may have sacrificed opportunities or family obligations in order to commit themselves to their duty. For many they have sacrificed their youth and education in order to serve their country.
Veterans come from all over the country from all walks of life. Yet the common binding fact is that these people were willing to make the sacrifices necessary. Here at Sabre88 we acknowledge and honor the sacrifices our veterans have made past and present. Sabre 88 takes pride in having veterans be a part of the corporate structure of our company. Their discipline and experience allow us to only provide the best service. Our own Business Development Manager Jim Hansel uses his experience in the United States Navy to not only provide advantages in our efforts but provide wisdom and knowledge necessary to improve ourselves not only as a company but as people. The veterans of Sabre88 have made many sacrifices and provided insights that allow us as a company to grow. Whether it be through advice, business negotiations, or reports the veterans at Sabre88 continue to inspire us every day. We would like to thank veterans like Jim Hansel, Ron Oliver, Howard Johnston, Jerome Gummin, Taylor Collins, Brian J. Schweikert, Bruce Conte, Robert Lightfoot, Scott Roe, and Nelson Cardone for being not only great role models for use to follow but also being dependable coworkers and great friends. From the bottom of our hearts here at Sabre 88 we thank you all for your efforts and sacrifices that you’ve made for your country.
