Who is a Veteran?
Veterans are people who served in the military (U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard) in times of war or peace.Veterans DayMany people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Do you know the difference?
Memorial Day is a day for remembering and honoring those who died serving their country.
On a Veterans Day we thank and honor those who served in the military. Veterans Day is observed on November 11th of each year. This day used to be called Armistice Day.
In 1918, at the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, fighting ceased in World War I. Formerly known as Armistice Day, Veterans Day (November 11) is a day to honor veterans living and dead who have given so much to protect our country. This year, with our armed forces fighting enemies overseas and at home, Veterans Day is even more significant.
