On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, fighting ceased between the Allied nations and Germans signifying the end of the “Great War”.
November 11th was officially proclaimed Armistice Day by Woodrow Wilson in 1919. In 1938, Armistice Day was formally recognized as a legal holiday to honor those dedicated to the cause of world peace during World War I. In 1954, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day to properly recognize American veterans of all wars.
Today we continue to celebrate and honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. We encourage you to thank those who have selflessly put themselves at risk for our safety.
