Joseph Ambrose, an 86-year-old World War I veteran, attends the dedication day parade for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1982, holding the flag that covered the casket of his son, who had been killed in the Korean War.
World War I ended at 11 am on November 11, 1918. A year later, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 of every year as Armistice Day, he said:
“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”
In 1953, Alfred King, who owned a shoe store in Emporia, Kansas, had the idea to extend Armistice Day to include all veterans. The Emporia Chamber of Commerce got behind the idea, and, a year later, got a bill through Congress changing Armistice Day to Veterans day, to honor all of America’s veterans.
While some calendars list it as Veteran’s Day, or Veterans’ Day (both are grammatically correct), the official spelling is Veterans Day. Source
Gästehaus Schmidt would like to thank the Veterans of all our wars for the service and sacrifice.
