Veterans Day in the USA
Wednesday, November 11, 2020
Each year on November 11, the United States celebrates Veterans Day. This is an official federal holiday that honors the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as Veterans. In other parts of the world, this day is called Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, because this day marks the anniversary of the end of World War I, as the majority of the hostilities were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the Armistice with Germany went into effect.
On Veterans Day we celebrate the service of all the U.S. military veterans, which is not to be confused with Memorial Day, a day to remember the men and women who died while serving. In honor of those patriotic men and women who risked their lives so that our country could be better, I ask God to guard them, protect them, and always bless them for the fine job they’ve done.
