Veteran’s Day – 11/11/2011

The holiday was originally established to celebrate the end of “The Great War” in 1918 and named “Armistice Day” or “Remembrance Day” until 1945, the end of the Second World War, when it was renamed “Veteran’s Day” in honor of all who served in our military – “The Great War” was hence referred to as “World War I”.
