Reason We Celebrate Veterans Day
To Honor Veterans of All Wars. It was formally known as Armistice Day, which was a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I.

History of Veterans Day
Armistice Day honored the end of World War I which was ended on November 11, 1918 and it was a U.S. legal holiday. In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower changed it to Veterans Day and called upon Americans everywhere to rededicate themselves to the cause of peace. The legislation also appointed a committee to organize and oversee the nation observance of Veterans Day. In addition to fulfilling that mission, the committee oversees the annual production and distribution of the annual Veterans Day poster and the Teacher Resource Guide.

In 1968, the date was changed to the fourth Monday in October to give federal employees a three day weekend starting in 1971. Many states still observed it on November 11 and in 1975, President Gerald R. Ford returned it to November 11.

Confusion Between Memorial Day and Veterans Day
Memorial Day is to honor veterans that were killed in action.
Veterans Day is to honor all veterans that served (or who serving) their country.
