On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month in 1918, an armistice was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War. Later this came to be known in the United States as Veterans Day. With 11th Hour Service’s Founders and Partners coming from the Military, it was important for the lineage and message of Veterans Day to be conveyed in our name.
What has also conveyed is how our Firm approaches the services that we provide our clients. While we will never compare our work to those in uniform serving our country, 11th Hour Service approaches our offerings with the same pride in our work, unwavering commitment to the missions, and its people, and reverence for the needs of others.
Equally as important is how those values convey to how we approach our culture and our employees. In service, it is often referred to as “the brotherhood”, but to us it ultimately means camaraderie. A camaraderie that fosters mutual advancement, collaboration, and innovation.
The aftermath of World War II and the Korean War is what led from the transition of Armistice Day to Veterans Day, with the intent of honoring not only those who have served in a conflict but those Veterans who have served in any capacity. We emphasize the “Service” in our name because we are committed to people; serving those who have served before us and who are currently serving, through our community service efforts.
