Happy Veterans Day!
November 11 became the national holiday for Veterans in 1938. It originated as “Armistice Day” in 1919 on the first anniversary of the end of World War I, and quickly evolved into what we know it as today. Veterans Day is the perfect time to honor all American service members, living or dead.
Veterans Day is important because it gives us a chance to remember the peril that our veterans endured during their service and continue to face today. Each year, on the 11th day of the 11th month, we are proud to take the time to thank and acknowledge all those who wear a uniform for our country.
Many Americans keep soldiers in their thoughts and prayers during their deployment overseas or time on base, but what about decades later, when they have been diagnosed with mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure during their time of service?
Brayton Purcell, LLP works tirelessly to defend the rights of military veterans exposed to asbestos. Are you a veteran who was exposed during your time of service? Contact us today.
