The History of Veterans Day
Originally known as Armistice Day, Veterans Day was established to commemorate the end of World War I, which officially concluded on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. In 1954, it was officially renamed Veterans Day to honor all veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Today, it serves as a day to honor and thank all veterans, living or deceased, for their service and sacrifice. It's a day to reflect on the enduring values that make our country great and the men and women who have defended those values with honor and courage.
