The first commemoration of Armistice Day was proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919. This proclamation was made after World War I and was regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars”. In 1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower changed Armistice Day to Veterans Day. On November 11th of every year we observe and pay tribute to all military veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces for their willingness to serve our country, and sacrifice their lives for the common good. Here are some unknown facts about Veterans Day.
Today, we celebrate all veterans. Thank you for your willingness to serve our nation.
