K-I has several Veterans who are part of the K-I family. K-I would like to take a moment to thank our Veterans for all you have done for our great United States of America. You sacrifices in order to serve and protect our great nation do not go unrecognized. As part of the K-I family, we honor all our Veterans who come to work on a daily basis, with a superior work ethic and drive to succeed. We honor you not only on the official day of November 11th, or the observed day of November 12th, but WE HONOR AND APPRECIATE YOU ALWAYS. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11th as Veterans Day and called upon Americans everywhere to rededicate themselves to the cause of peace. Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Both holidays were established to recognize and honor the men and women who have worn the uniform of the United States Armed Forces. But Memorial Day was originally set aside as a day for remembering those and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle.

While those who have died are also remembered on Veterans Day, Veterans Day is intended to thank and honor all of those who served honorably in the military – in wartime or peacetime. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank living Veterans for their service, to acknowledge their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served – not only those who died – have sacrificed and done their duty.
