WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today our nation observes Veterans Day, a federal holiday when our country honors those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. This holiday is celebrated every year on November 11th (observed on the nearest business day) and coincides with holidays around the world that mark the end of World War I. The holiday was originally called “Armistice Day,” until President Eisenhower signed a bill into law in 1954 that changed the holiday’s name. SDV’s President made the following statement today:

“We honor the sacrifice of those who defend our freedom. It is especially important that our country takes care of our veterans. SDV is honored to play a role in that care, and we are honored to work in military treatment facilities and VA medical centers across the country. SDV’s CEO, Michael Perry, leads SDV’s corporate affairs based on the principles he employed during more than 25 years of military service. Everyone at SDV, including the many veterans on our teams, want to take this day to honor those veterans in our lives - today and every day.”
