Date of Veterans Day Observance

11th of November.

History of Veterans Day

When World War 1 met its end the armistice day was recognized by Woodrow Wilson in 1919. When World War II and the Korean War fast the name of the armistice day got changed to Veterans Day.

The day was held with observing the:

  1. Memorials
  2. Parades
  3. A break in the daily lives and the activities of the schools and businesses at 11:00 a.m. to mark the moment of reflection and respect.

During 1938, many US states put their efforts which resulted in the approval of observing the day as a federal holiday on the 11th of November. It emerged as the armistice day to recognize the cause of world peace. In 1954, Congress lobbying was preceded by the change of the name of the event from Armistice Day to veterans day.

There was also a period when some people observed the day in October but it was ignored by most of the people and the Veterans Day was continued to observe on 11 November, changing the date back to its initial marking day.

Veterans Day Observations

In the US, one observation is performed as a tradition for a long time in which a ret is late at the Tomb where the unknown soldiers rest in Arlington National Cemetery.

People also take their own ways to say thanks to veterans. The observations include:

  1. Church and community services
  2. Fundraising activities
  3. Parades.

Nowadays, people observe this day by focusing on increasing engagement with the former serviceman and women. People try to ensure that they have all the essential facilities, homes, employment, and any other kind of support that they need.

This unique and practical way to support them is probably the most perfect way of showing gratitude towards them.

People can join several programs throughout the country to join with such an idea.

And why not, instead of just honoring the veterans, it is a far better idea to perform some duties towards the real heroes. A service that a veteran performs it can never be paid back or compensated in any way or mean. However, supporting them to make their lives easier is the most realistic and indeed the best way to pay tribute to them.
