This Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11, we honor the men and women who have served in our armed forces.
Originally known as Armistice Day, the day commemorated the end of World War I. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the Armistice with Germany went into effect. However, it was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
President Woodrow Wilson addressed the country on the first Armistice Day on November 11, 1919. In the final portion of his address, he stated:
“To us in America the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.”
