Veterans Day History

Veterans Day celebrates the men and women who have fought for the United States in the armed forces for their patriotism, sacrifice, and willingness to serve. Originally designated Armistice Day by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919, the day of remembrance became a legal federal holiday in 1938. After World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a day to honor all American veterans of all wars.
