Every year, we come together as a nation to even further recognize and pay tribute to the veterans of our country. The sacrifices that they have made during their time in service have provided freedoms that are far too often taken for granted. Veterans Day is the official United States holiday honoring those who have served in the armed services. The holiday was first proclaimed as “Armistice Day” by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919. However, it was not until May 13, 1938 when a congressional act had approved of making the 11th of November a legal holiday.
It wasn’t until 1945 that a World War II veteran had the idea to expand the tradition of Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans, and not only those who had given their lives in the First World War. Dwight Eisenhower was the President at the time, and he was in favor of the motion. Eisenhower was presented with a bill through Congress, which he later signed into law on May 26th, 1954. The act was amended by Congress on June 1st of the same year, officially replacing “Armistice” with “Veterans.”
