November 11 is Veteran’s Day, a federal holiday. It is a day to honor or memorialize those who have fought in diverse ways to keep us safe. We say thank you, offer a heartfelt handshake, a simple nod, or an honest hug.
Veteran’s Day is a United States holiday that tributes those who have served in the U.S. military. Armistice Day was the original name of the holiday, signifying the anniversary of the end of World War I. In 1954, the name was changed to Veteran’s Day. Armistice Day is still celebrated in various regions and countries around the world.
November 11 was claimed as the official date as World War I, for the most part, ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. This was the day that the armistice with Germany was made.
We will always remember the heroes still living or the ones who gave their lives for our freedom.
Veteran’s Day is now honored each year with elaborate ceremonies, parades, and other events celebrating peace and the return of our courageous men and women who gave of their time, their expertise, and their lives to keep our country free.
