Veterans Day began as Armistice Day when Woodrow Wilson declared it a national holiday at the close of World War I. In 1938, Congress enacted a law making the day a legal holiday. In 1954, the law was amended to change the holiday’s name to Veterans Day to represent all veterans.
According to the Veterans Affairs website, Veterans Day is, “A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.”
Search Engine Land thanks all veterans for their service in our Armed Forces.
