Happy Veteran’s Day – we honor all Veterans today, living and passed on. Unfortunately with the current crisis, the museum is closed until further notice, so please celebrate safely at home.
To help keep you occupied, here is some history about Veteran’s Day (courtesy of History.com):
Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
