Thanking Veterans For Their Service on Veterans Day
After the end of World War I, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of “Armistice Day” – but with the end of World War II, the Greatest Generation recognized the need to do more to pay thanks to the veterans who had fought so honorably around the world to secure our nation’s freedoms. The day was known from then on as Veterans Day.
For almost 70 years, Lincoln Tech has been celebrating America's troops and their commitment and dedication to protecting this nation. This Veterans Day, Lincoln Tech is especially grateful to the men and women of the Armed Forces, along with their families, for the sacrifices they have made in keeping us safe.
A TRADITION OF SERVICE TO OUR NATION’S MILITARY
Lincoln Tech was actually created in 1946 to be a resource for veterans returning from World War II. The first Lincoln school opened in Newark, NJ and offered hands-on HVAC training to help veterans translate the skills they built in the military into skills that would help them transition into civilian careers.
In the 21st century, Lincoln Tech has gone above and beyond being simply a Military Friendly School. We celebrate our veterans every day and help them make the most of their strong will, hard work and determination so their dreams can become a reality. Lincoln Tech welcomes veterans with open arms. We understand that the transition back into civilian life can be challenging, and we are here to help veterans find a career path they will enjoy and thrive in.
With our military admissions ready to help guide them into their new lives, we are honored to serve veterans in thanks for all the service they have given to us.
