On this Veteransâ Day, Inogen would like to salute all Veterans of Armed Services who have served our country.
Veteransâ Day was originally established as a commemoration of Armistice Day that first signaled the end of World War I. After World War II and the Korean War the national holiday was officially changed to âVeteransâ Dayâ and would honor American veterans of all wars.
Today Veteransâ Day honors American veterans of armed services and of all wars. It is celebrated every November 11th, and observed on the 12th in years when the 11th falls on a Sunday, such as this year.
Did You Know?
– Armistice Day celebrated the cessation of hostilities between the Allies and Germany on November 11, 1918, but World War I didnât officially end until seven months later when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919.
– 11:00am carries special significance on Veteranâs day, since it is the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
– Veteransâ Day was briefly observed during October in the 1970s, but after much confusion andÂ disagreement, it was returned to November 11th in 1975.
