Originally intended to mark the anniversary of the ending of World War I, a day was established paying tribute to the heroes of that tragic struggle and rededicating ourselves to the cause of peace. Later, the United States was involved in other great military conflicts, which added millions of veterans living and dead to the honor rolls of this Nation. In 1926, Congress called for the observance of November 11 to be known as Armistice Day. Today, we pay homage to the veterans of all its wars who have contributed so much to the preservation of this Nation. A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
