In 1938, this day was declared a National legal holiday, "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace." While originally called Armistice Day, honoring WWI veterans, in 1954, it was changed to include honoring all veterans.
Thank you, veterans. Thank you for your service to our country. Thank you for your sacrifices- of family, of time, of life. Thank you for keeping our country free. Thank you to the families for supporting them. Thank you.
