Transcript of Veteran's Day
A Congressional Act approved on May 13, 1938 made November 11th of each year a legal holiday.
In 1945 veterans' from World War II rallied to get Armistice Day, which only honored veterans from WWI, changed to Veterans Day, which would honor American veterans from all wars.
In the United States, an official wreath-laying ceremony is held each Veterans Day at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, while parades and other celebrations are held in states around the country.
That day was established as Armistice Day in 1919, by President Woodrow Wilson, to commemorate veterans who served in WWI.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in WWI, then known as "the Great War."
