The original name of veteran’s day is “armistice day”. It is an official US public holiday and is observed every year on November 11. It is to honor all the military veterans – the people who served in the US armed forces. It jibes with other holidays, which includes Remembrance Day and Armistice Day, celebrated in other countries which mark the anniversary of World War I end. The considerable antagonism and war at that time were formally ended at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in the year 1918 which is when the Armistice with Germany was brought into effect. At the persuading of the major veteran organizations, this day was renamed as the Veterans Day in the year 1954.
Make sure that you thank at least one veteran on this day!
