Today’s Google logo is in honor of Veteran’s Day, paying homage to the men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces.
Along with an illustration depicting men and women in uniform and a red, white and blue Google logo, Google has included a link on its homepage to a career recruitment site for veterans.
The “Veterans: Your next mission could be with Google” link leads to a page that reads, “Veterans make great Googlers.”
Take it from us, Google is a great place to be a vet.
Before becoming a legal holiday, Veteran’s Day was recognized as Armistice Day – a day celebrated around the world to mark the anniversary of the end of World War I in 1918. Seven years later, on May 13, 1938, Congress enacted a law to make it a federal holiday, striking the word “Armistice” and creating Veteran’s Day in its place.
While the holiday began as a day to celebrate World War I veterans, in 1954 the legal definition of the holiday was expanded to honor American veterans of all wars.
