Veterans Day is observed annually on November 11, honoring people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
In November of 1938, Armistice Day was made a national holiday to pay tribute to those Americans who had served in World War I. By 1954, after World War II and after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting in its place the word "Veterans."
Since then, people have gathered to thank those who served the country. If you know someone that has been in the military, give them a gift to show exactly how much you appreciate them.
