Since 1938, Veterans Day has been recognized as a National Holiday to honor those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. On October 8, 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower designated November 11, the day which marked Armistice Day and the end of World War I, as Veterans Day. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) acknowledges Veterans Day as “A celebration to honor America’s Veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.”

Veterans Day should not to be confused with Memorial Day

Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans
