Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served in our country’s Armed Forces.
Veterans Day was originally called “Armistice Day,” and November 11 was chosen because it is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954 the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” to honor the heroism of those who died in our country’s service in all wars.
Veterans Day is a perfect time to learn more about the wars where our soldiers, sailors and Marines fought to preserve our freedom, to visit war memorials, or to attend recognition ceremonies. You will find many Veterans Day events in the Chicago area.
DuPage County, for example, holds many special events to commemorate this important holiday:
