Every year on November 11, the country stands together to pay tribute to our veterans. It's a time to honor those who have served our great country and fought for our freedom. Originally beginning as Armistice Day, this was a day to honor those who died for our country and held on the day of the Armistice signing. It was later changed to Veterans Day in 1954 to honor all veterans.
Why We Celebrate Veterans Day
We celebrate Veterans Day as a way to say, "Thank you for your service!" to the brave men and women who have served in the United States military. It's a day to give collective thanks to those who put the country's needs above all else and served in uniform for the United States of America. Veterans Day is filled with free offerings and other benefits for veterans as a way to show appreciation to our prior military members as well as our current military members.
