Veterans Honored by Local School Districts

The origins of Veterans Day go back to the end of World War I. On November 11, 1918, the Allied Forces and Germany signed an armistice ending war hostilities. The fighting ceased on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Armistice Day was first celebrated in 1919 under a proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson. On October 8, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower issued the first “Veterans Day Proclamation.” As a result, the name of this November 11 national holiday was changed to Veterans Day.
