Veterans Day 2017On November 11, 1918, an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect. On its first anniversary, President Wilson proclaimed the day shall be "filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory". A day to honor veterans of World War I.

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U.S. Code, Sec. 87a) was approved on May 13, 1938, which made November 11th a legal holiday, known as Armistice Day. A few years later, World War II required the largest mobilization of service men in the history of the United States and the American forces fought in Korea. In 1954, the veterans services organizations urged Congress to change the word "Armistice" to "Veterans". Congress approved this change, and November 11th became a day to honor all American veterans, where ever and whenever they had served.

This Veterans Day we honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, particularly living veterans. We will fly our flags at half-mast and a moment of silence shall be shared at 11:00 throughout our great nation.
