Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In 1954, it was amended and exchanged the word “Armistice” for “Veterans.” The new designation was to honor all American veterans of all wars.
The day is set aside to thank and honor veterans who served honorably in the military – in wartime or peacetime.
EnTouch has a few of our own Vets to thank today as well!
