Written by Paula Zalar for The McNicholas Milestone
Each year on November 11, Americans bow their heads in gratitude towards their veterans. Men and women dutifully serve in five branches of the military: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. In what was originally called Armistice Day, which was named after the signing of the Armistice which ended World War I, Americans gave thanks and their respect to the men and woman who gave their lives for our country. Armistice Day was later dubbed Veterans Day in 1954 to honor all of America’s veterans.
