Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a federal holiday in the United States observed on November 11, to honor persons who have served in the United States Armed Forces. This holiday marks the anniversary of the end of World War I which occurred at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. This day was originally called Armistice Day but was renamed Veterans Day in 1954. It is still called Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in some countries involved in that war. Armistice Day was first observed in the United States in 1919.

Thank you to all the women and men who have served and continue to serve the United States in the cause for peace.
