Honoring U.S. Armed Forces on Veterans Day


blog.edx.org

Also known as The Great War, World War I was one of the deadliest events in history. More than four million Americans saw battle, and more than three hundred thousand lost their lives. We observe Veterans Day each year on November 11, the date that marks the anniversary of the end of WWI, when an armistice was signed between the Allies and Germany on November 11, 1918.

Veterans Day was originally observed as Armistice Day, honoring service members who had died in the line of duty. On May 26, 1954, President Eisenhower signed a bill into law changing Armistice Day to Veterans Day, to honor all U.S. military veterans.

The 62nd annual National Veterans Day Observance starts at 10:30am Eastern Time at Arlington National Ceremony with a concert by the United States Army Band. Explore VA volunteer opportunities and find local events honoring veterans in your community.

One of the best ways to honor a veteran is to listen, by both engaging in meaningful conversation, and by examining any broad assumptions you may have about each veteran’s experience. We invite you to challenge your current perception of warfare. Gain a deeper understanding from political, philosophical, historical, and cultural standpoints, and develop a new perspective to with which to approach discussions this Veteran’s Day.
