Come November 11 our nation will celebrate Veterans Day. This day has been set aside to honor veterans who fought to preserve our freedom and to end hostilities between warring countries. Also celebrated as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day in some other parts of the world, Veterans Day is a federal holiday. It’s a day to celebrate what veterans have achieved. On this special day, due recognition is given to all military personnel who have served. It’s a way for us, as a nation, to thank them for braving all danger to protect the United States and its Allied Nations.
Veteran’s Day was first celebrated on November 11, 1919 when the first proclaimed Armistice Day was declared by President Woodrow Wilson. Later on, the event’s name was changed to Veterans Day. Today, we remember those who are currently serving in the U.S. Military, as well as those whose lives were lost in the past. When we sadly watch a military funeral procession with its flag-draped coffin, it’s such a solemn and stirring event that one can’t help but think about how costly our freedom is. At times like these we realize how important it is to honor our veterans, for it is they who keep our nation “the land of the free.”
