US Citizens Commemorate Veterans Day
The United States commemorates Veterans Day annual activities to commemorate the millions of men and women who have served in the country’s armed forces, often at the expense of their own lives.
President Donald Trump, said on Twitter, “On this Veterans Day – 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I, we honor the brave HEROES who fought for America in the Great War, and any Veterans who have worn uniforms and kept our country safe, strong and free! “
In his Veterans Day message, former President Barack Obama wrote on Tweeter, “To all veterans and your family: thank you. There is no award that can truly equal your service and sacrifice.”
“But we can all do our best to uphold the values of service, responsibility, generosity, and American citizenship that you share in defending,” he added.
In the US, Veterans Day was originally called “Armistice Day,” to commemorate the end of World War I, but Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for this annual commemoration. November 11 every year becomes a national holiday starting in 1938, with an official commemoration of this year on Monday because the 11th falls on Sunday.
November 11 is Veterans Day in America, a federal holiday honoring all military personnel serving in the war.
The commemoration of Veterans Day this year is the first since US troops left Iraq in December last year. This year’s Veterans Day is also an opportunity for Americans to thank World War II veterans, whose population is rapidly shrinking.
US President Barack Obama will lay a wreath at the Unknown Soldier Monument at Arlington National Tombs.
Communities across America usually hold Veterans Day commemorations that are complemented by ceremonies. The federal government office will be closed Monday (12/11) in commemoration of Veterans Day.
Veterans Day, formerly called Armory Day, was first commemorated in 1919. A year earlier, at the 11th hour of the 11th day and 11th month, a ceasefire was introduced between Germany and the Allied countries.
