On the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour, the men and women who serve our country – past, present, and future – are honored and saluted for their service and selfless acts that keep the rest of us at home, safe. We were part of this solemn tribute yesterday.
It was on Nov. 11, 1919 that President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed what was then known as Armistice Day, a year after World War I came to an end. Nineteen years later, Congress made Nov. 11th a national holiday. In 1954, as we all know it today, Armistice Day became Veterans Day.
Since 1979, ClearSpan Fabric Structures has been serving our customers with American-made steel buildings for just about any application imaginable, and that includes the proud branches of our Military. One of our most recent projects was ratified at Ft. Carson, a United States Army installation near Colorado Springs, Colo. The new 72’-wide X 75’-long structure has been appointed as a security check point station for the base. In the shadows of the Rocky Mountains, Ft. Carson is also the home to the Army Reserve, Navy Reserve and the Colorado Army National Guard.
So this week, while you’re out and about, ClearSpan asks that you thank a Veteran – thank them for all that they’ve done for their country, for their family, for their friends. And if you are visiting Ft. Carson, also thank them for choosing the American-made strength of ClearSpan!
