Why is Veterans Day always celebrated on November 11th?
The holiday, established in 1938 to honor World War I veterans, was originally called Armistice Day to mark the November 11, 1918, signing of the armistice with Germany that ended the war. In 1954 the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day to honor U.S. veterans of all wars.
