Remember Our Veterans On Veterans Day

On Sunday, November 11, we honor our nation's veterans who have served in all of America's wars.

November 11 is the day that an armistice was declared between Germany and America and its allies during World War I, the so-called "Great War." The exact official ending of the war was the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

The United States Congress in 1926 declared that the anniversary of the armistice be commemorated with prayers and thanksgiving. On July 1, 1954, Congress officially changed the name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day.
