Saturday, Nov. 11 was Veterans Day. Friday, Nov. 10 was Anthony J. Domico’s 75th birthday. There was no “Veterans Day” when he was born. Armistice Day was first recognized in 1919, but President Dwight D. Eisenhower didn’t change the holiday’s name to Veterans Day until 1954. Less than a decade after that, Domico would be recognized as a veteran himself.
