In honor of Veterans Day—November 11—DigiCOPY in Stevens Point and Wausau will be distributing complimentary Veterans Day cards and envelopes to customers and community members.
The red, white, and blue cards are available through Tuesday, Nov. 10 at the Stevens Point location, 428 Division Street, or the Wausau location, 1800 W. Stewart Avenue, during regular business hours, Monday through Saturday.
The completed cards should not be returned to the DigiCOPY store. Completed cards can be mailed or otherwise distributed by those who pick them up.
“We are grateful for the dedicated service of our veterans and grateful for the loyal customers we have in the Stevens Point and Wausau areas,” said Craig Shuler, DigiCOPY president, and CEO. “We wish to share our gratitude by providing the complimentary Veterans Day cards…and for the cost of a stamp or the time it takes to hand-deliver a card, we hope Wisconsin will express their ‘thanks’ to those neighbors, family members, and friends who have served or continue to serve their country.”
Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938.
