Veterans Day

November 11, 1919 – President Woodrow Wilson publishes an address to all Americans
establishing that date as “Armistice Day”, a day set aside to remember the service of all the
American forces and their victory in World War One which ended with the armistice with
Germany one year earlier. On June 1, 1954, the name officially changed to “Veterans’ Day” to
honor all those who had served in all wars. It is still traditional to maintain a moment of silence
at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month – the hour when the armistice was signed.
November 11, 1929 – US President Warren G. Harding dedicates the Tomb of The Unknown
Soldier at Arlington Cemetery
