Arab Americans are very proud members who served and continue to serve in the United States military, including in the U.S. Marines, Air Force, Navy and Army. The service of Arab Americans dates back to the Civil War in the 19th Century, and includes service during World War I, World War II, Korea and the Vietnam War, as well as in military service during the most recent wars targeting the Middle East countries of Iraq, Yemen, Syria and in other missions in other Arab countries.
This year, the United States celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I, after which Armistice Day (later called Veteran's Day) was inaugurated, November 11, 1919. Armistice Day was designated by order of then President Woodrow Wilson.
To commemorate this Centennial, Arab Americans of all Arab World nationalities who served in the U.S. Military are being urged to participate and show our pride and our patriotism. "We served!"
