Reflecting on What Military Sacrifices Have Made Possible

Reflecting on What Military Sacrifices Have Made Possible

Memorial Day is a time to reflect and give thanks to the members of the U.S. Armed Forces who lost their lives in service to their country. The willingness of men and women to make the ultimate sacrifice while defending this country and its ideals makes it possible for us to enjoy a free society; one where the ability to succeed is limited only by one’s own motivation and vision. The military also provides a pipeline for new hires, enabling companies like Applied Materials to tap into their skills to push the limits of science and technology even further.
Thank You American Veterans for Your Honorable Service

In the U.S., Veterans Day is observed annually to honor military veterans and the sacrifices they have made for our country. In other parts of the world, it is celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day. Today’s date marks the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I, when major hostilities of the war were formally called to an end at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
