Author Veterans are authors (or writers) who served in the military. We celebrate their dedication and thank them for serving.

Interesting Veterans Day Facts

  • Veterans Day is always celebrated on November 11th.
  • The original name for this holiday was Armistice Day. The word armistice means “state of peace agreed to between opponents so they can discuss peace terms.”
  • The first celebration was held on November 11, 1919. This was the first anniversary of WWI ending.
  • In 1926, Congress passed a resolution to make this date an annual observance and it became a national holiday in 1938.
  • The current name came about in order to honor all who served as well as those who died fighting. The change was legislated in 1954 by President Eisenhower.
  • Today we give special honor to the living and deceased servicemen and servicewomen and to the civilians that support them.
