Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day and was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I. In 1954, the name Armistice was replaced with the word Veterans. Over the years politicians argued as to when it should be held until finally in 1968, President Gerald R. Ford singed a law to return the annual observance of Veterans Day to the original date of Nov. 11 beginning in 1978.
If you have never had any military ties, it’s probably hard for you to understand the importance of honoring these men and women.
