Veterans Memorial

Text Size

In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as Armistice Day to commemorate the end of World War I. The end of the war happened at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, thus November 11 was chosen.

Congress changed the name to Veterans Day in 1954. Veterans Day, a legal holiday in the U.S., honors all who have served in the nation’s armed forces, whether they are living or dead.

Perhaps they are not stars,

but rather openings in heaven

where the love of our lost ones

pours through and shines down

upon us to let us know they are happy.
