Veterans Day 2023

   Nov 08, 2023

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919, marking the first anniversary of the end of World War I. In 1926 Congress passed a resolution for an annual observance. November 11th became a national holiday beginning in 1938. In 1954, President Eisenhower officially changed the name of the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day.

Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans, living or deceased, but pays special thanks to living veterans who served the United States honorably during war or peacetime.
