Veterans Day – November 11th

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, a temporary stop of warfare was declared between the Allied nations and Germany during World War I. Armistice Day began the following year, and became a legal federal holiday in 1938. After World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day and now honors American veterans of all wars.
