Honoring Our Veterans
Every year, we try to do something to honor our employees that served our country. It certainly isn’t near enough to show our gratitude for the service they’ve given.
This year, we’re presenting our employees with a custom made sign that we fabricated in our metal shop!
Veterans Welcome to Apply
We always welcome veterans to apply to our positions at Control Chief. Service in the armed forces often provides specific training, education, and experience that is a perfect match for our needs as an electronics and technology manufacturer.
The military also instills a sense of personal dignity, teamwork, and an unmatchable work ethic.
We’re honored to have many veterans as a part of our Control Chief family!

History of Veterans Day
November 11 was known for many years as “Armistice Day.” It was a celebration of the end of the fighting in World War I, at 11AM on the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month.
After WWII, the focus of the holiday was expanded to honor all veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces. In 1954, Congress passed a law, signed into effect by President Eisenhower declaring the observance as a national holiday.
In 1968, the holiday was moved to the fourth Monday in November, but ten years later, it was moved back to the November 11 date, aligning it with the tradition of the Armistice Day observance.
