Happy #VeteransDay from SymphonicHCM!
When Did Veterans Day Start?
World War I ended on Nov. 11, 1918, and celebrations soon turned solemn, in remembrance of all who were lost. Armistice Day began to be observed throughout the world in 1919, honoring those who brought about the end of the “Great War.”
When Did The Day Become “Veterans Day”?
In the aftermath of World War II, “Remembrance Day” was adopted as a new title to commemorate all soldiers who died, not just those of World War I.
In 1954, President Eisenhower signed a bill rededicating Nov. 11 as Veterans Day, encouraging Americans to commit themselves to the cause of peace and to honor America’s veterans for their courage, honor, patriotism, and sacrifice.
