Census Bureau Profile - America Facts for Features: Veterans Day



Census Bureau Profile - America Facts for Features: Veterans Day

Census Bureau Profile America Facts for Features: Veterans Day

PROFILE AMERICA FACTS FOR FEATURES: CB19-FF.10
Veterans Day 2019: Nov. 11                        
Veterans Day originated as "Armistice Day" on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary marking the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation in 1954 to change the name to Veterans Day as a way to honor those who served in all American wars. The day honors military veterans with parades and speeches across the nation and a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. The ceremony honors and thanks all who served in the U.S. armed forces.
The following facts are made possible by the invaluable responses to the U.S. Census Bureau's surveys. We appreciate the public's cooperation in helping us measure America's people, places and economy.

Veterans Memorial Walkway - Bricks remain on sale

Brick Sales Are Ongoing

The Veterans Memorial Walkway Project has been an overwhelming success! The Walkway was dedicated on Sunday, November 11, 2018 on the Franklin Town Common. The dedication followed the first installation of engraved bricks as well as 45 memorial plaques which honor Franklin's fallen heroes (from WWI to present day) who made the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country.

Local and state dignitaries, members of the Massachusetts Army National Guard and a crowd estimated at several thousand family and community members attended the Walkway dedication ceremony. The Massachusetts National Guard 215th Army Band and the Franklin High School Chorus provided patriotic music and songs for the event which was followed by a reception at the Franklin Senior Center.

The second installation of engraved bricks coincided with Memorial Day 2019. Future installations are planned for Veterans Day and Memorial Day moving forward until all Walkway bricks are sold.

The buy-a-brick project offers individuals the opportunity to honor a special veteran by purchasing a brick paver inscribed with the veteran's name and branch of service. Non-Franklin veterans and those currently serving in the U.S. military are also included.
