A long tradition of thanking our vets



President Woodrow Wilson and wife, Edith Bolling Wilson, rode in a carriage on Armistice Day 1918, the day that marked the official end of World War I at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month. One year later, on November 11, 1919, Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the observance of Armistice Day. November 11 became a legal holiday in 1938 and officially became known as Veterans Day in the United States in 1954. Veterans Day falls on Saturday this year.
