Thank You To Our Veterans
A Country Music Military History Lesson

Veterans Day originated as Armistice Day in 1938 to honor the "Great War" (what we now call World War I)
veterans on the anniversary of the signing of the armistice ending the first world war. In 1954 the name of
the holiday was changed to "Veterans Day" to honor the veterans of both world wars as well as Korea and
peacetime veterans.
