Veteran’s Day

By Tori Nix

Veteran’s Day is a national holiday celebrated on November 11th.  Veteran’s Day  celebrates all the soldiers who have served in our country. It’s also the anniversary of the end of WWI. Veteran’s Day is celebrated as both a state and federal holiday in the United States.

    U.S president, Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed Armistice Day for November 11, 1919. On June 1, 1954, Armistice Day was changed to Veteran’s Day when Congress passed a bill that was known for making Veteran’s Day a national holiday.

    Veteran’s Day (Armistice Day) became in effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 when an armistice came between Germany and the Allied nations. On November 11, 1919, Veteran’s Day was commemorated for the first time.
