VETERANS DAY HISTORY

Originally called Armistice Day, commemorating the signing of the agreement that ended World War I at 11:00 A.M., November 11, 1918, this federal holiday was changed to Veterans Day in 1954. At that time, it became a day to honor all the men and women who have served in the armed forces of the United States. Each year, special ceremonies are held at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Note that Veterans Day is different than Memorial Day, which is a day to reflect and remember those who lost their lives in service to their country.
