Veterans Day History

Veterans Day wasn’t always known as that. It used to be called Armistice Day and it was a holiday to honor the end of World War I, which was officially established on November 11, 1918. In 1954 after having both World War II and the Korean War, they changed it from the word “Armistice” to “Veterans” because “Armistice Day” was the day to recognize all World War I veterans. The reason it was changed to Veterans Day is to honor American veterans of all wars. In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford signed a law which made Veterans Day be celebrated on November 11th since 1978. The big difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day is that, Memorial Day honors those who have fallen or those who have been wounded in battle fighting for this country. Veterans Day honors those who have served and are still living. 

Kenston High School recognizes our veterans by wearing patriotic clothing to school. This shows recognition to our veterans. Make sure to thank James for his service in the Navy. Also thank Mr. Link for serving in the Army Reserves.
