Veterans Day

November 11

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice (or temporary cessation of hostilities) was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as, “The Great War”. Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the U.S. in 1938. In the aftermath of WWII and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars. ┬áVeterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.
