Happy Veterans Day November 11, 2022

 

Why do Americans celebrate Veterans Day on November 11th?

 

The Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, marking the official end of World War I. Nonetheless, the armistice date of November 11, 1918, remained in the public imagination as the date that marked the end of the conflict.

 

Veterans Day is a U.S. legal holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars, and Veterans Day 2022 occurs on Friday, November 11. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, then known as “the Great War.”
