Article 1 (Oct 2019): Veterans Day: A time to honor all who served
October 31, 2019The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month Nov. 11, 1918, is recognized as the end of the world's first global conflict, World War I.
In 1938, November 11 was named Armistice Day in recognition of those who served. Then came World War II and the greatest mobilization of armed forces in history. After that, American forces fought in Korea.
So in 1954, the 83rd Congress changed Armistice Day to Veterans Day to honor all who served. Veterans Day National Committee services are held at Arlington Memorial Amphitheater. It is built around the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery, property that once belonged to General Robert E. Lee. At 11 a.m., a color guard representing all military services honors the Unknown Soldier with "Present Arms," the laying of a Presidential wreath, and the playing of "Taps."
Though these services are held at Arlington, the primary focus of Veterans Day is on veterans who are alive and with us today. They are honored with parades and speeches. To all veterans working among us, we sincerely say, "Thank you for your service."
