On June 28,1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed and World War I ended. Government officials decided that June 28 would be known as Armistice Day to celebrate the ending the war. The holiday later changed to Veterans Day by order of President Dwight D. Eisenhower to give tribute to all living and passed veterans. The day is set aside to celebrate anyone that has served to protect our country and show our appreciation to them. Other countries also celebrate the holiday, such as Great Britain, France, Australia, and Canada. The United States shows respect to the 16.1 million living veterans and 2 million passed veterans by lowering all flags to half mast, some schools and businesses close and, if not, some will have a moment of silence at 11:00 a.m. There is no mail delivery on this day as it is a federal holiday. Make sure next Veterans Day to give a special thanks to all veterans for their sacrifice for our freedom!
