Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which took place on November 11, 1918. In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially changed the name of the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day.
Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans – living or dead . It especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorable during war or peacetime.
Today and every day, we at CFR would like to thank all military personnel, past and present, for your service to our nation and our community. We additionally want to thank all the families that support them.
