NORFOLK DAILY NEWS, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2013

Honoring Our Veterans

On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month

in 1918, an armistice, or agreement !"# !$"%&' ()&*"+,#"-.,/'.0"1. +..)" the Allied nations and Germany in World War I. One year later, President Woodrow Wilson declared that Nov. 11, 1919 was a day to remember Americans for their military service in World War I. He called it Armistice Day. He suggested that Americans celebrate with parades and perhaps a “brief suspension of business” around 11 a.m. President Wilson also hoped it would be a time when Americans offered prayers of thanksgiving for those who had served and for peace for all times.

Congress followed the states’ lead and in 1938 declared that every November 11 would be observed as Armistice Day.

Congress changed the name to Veterans Day in 1954 to honor veterans of all wars.

For a brief time, 19711974, Veterans Day was observed on the 4th Monday in October. Since 1975, Veterans Day is always observed on Nov. 11.

If Nov. 11 falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the federal government observes the holiday on the previous Friday or following Monday, respectively.

Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans, living or dead, but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

Nov. 11, 1921, when the first of the unknown soldiers was buried in Arlington National Cemetery, unidentified soldiers also were laid to rest at Westminster Abbey in London and at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Memorial Day, the fourth Monday in May, honors American service members who died in service to their country.

States designate their own holidays, so there are no official U.S. national holidays. The government can only designate holidays for federal employees and for the District of Columbia. But states almost always follow the federal lead.

★ President Wilson originally intended Armistice Day to be observed one time, but many states decided to observe it every year to honor World War I veterans.
