Thank You Veterans!

| Heidi H.

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.

  • According to the most recent data from the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics (NCVAS), there are approximately 19.2 million veterans in the United States.
  • Over 9 million veterans are over the age of 65.
  • As of September 2021, there are 5 million veterans receiving disability compensation.
  • Every year at exactly 11:00 am, on Veterans Day, a wreath is laid at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the Arlington National Cemetery.
  • Great Britain, France, Australia, and Canada also commemorate the veterans of World War I and II on or near November 11th.

Today, we celebrate all veterans. Thank you for your willingness to serve our nation.
