As I mentioned before, Veteran's Day honors the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Services. It is always celebrated on November 11th every year, the same day the Armistice was signed in 1918, ending the fighting in World War I.
World War I, then normally referred to as the "The Great War", ended with implementation of an armistice (temporary cessation of hostilities - in this case until the final peace treaty - the infamous Treaty of Versailles, was signed in 1919) between the Allies and Germany at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of November 1918.
November 11 1919, President Wilson proclaims the first Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations." The original concept for the celebration was for the suspension of business for a two minute period beginning at 11:00 a.m., with the day also marked by parades and public meetings.
Great Britain and France commemorate this day but it's called Armistice Day. Canada also observed the day, but it's called Remembrance Day. We observe the day with parades and speeches.Click on the link to download the Veterans Day ideas below:
