Veterans day

Veterans day

Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for you, our veterans.

This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country's service and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to "Veterans Day" in order to account for all veterans in all wars.

When first celebrated as Armistice Day, the day marked the end of World War I, formally recognized on the “11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month” in 1918.

Today we continue to celebrate the day as Veterans Day, still recognizing the original tie with November 11. That means Veterans Day is on the same day every year -- November 11 -- regardless of on which day of the week it falls. When the date falls on a Saturday or Sunday, government officials or businesses may recognize it on both the official day and the following Monday.

At Maddaloni Jewelers we truly want to thank all the Veterans who severed over the years.

Nothing says Thank you more than a piece of jewelry to remind our veterans that we truly honor their services. A beautiful St. Michael's pendant goes hand in hand for our protectors.

Depending on what branch they severed in, we can help you find the perfect pendant on a 21in chain for them to wear with honor.

Or The 22KILL Honor Ring is a black band worn on the index finger as a silent salute to all veterans - past and present. The Honor Ring is not simply a fashion statement, it's a symbol of respect and support.

Come down to find the perfect gift to honor our veterans today at our Shop in Huntington!
