Veterans Day is on November 11th. Please take time to honor Veterans and their families. Use this day to say ‘thank you’.
Memorial Day and Veterans Day can be confused by some Americans. The Department of Defense clears up some common misconceptions about Veterans Day. Memorial Day provides us with an opportunity to honor those who have lost their lives serving our country, while Veterans Day is an opportunity to thank living military members. Veterans Day was originally Armistice Day, the day World War I ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. In 1954, Congress changed the declaration from Armistice day to Veterans Day to honor all veterans from World War II and the Korean War. After debate over when to celebrate it, President Gerald Ford signed a law making November 11 a federal holiday, Veterans Day.
