Veterans Day "A Remembrance"

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as first commemoration of "Armistice Day". "To us in America, the reflection of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the service of their country."

President Eisenhower signed HR 778 changing Armistice Day to Veterans Day. With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954 November 11 became a day to honor American Veterans of all wars.

"Fluffy and I honor all of our military through our daily prayers. "
