Veterans Day in November Refreshes the Service of Veterans

Veterans-Day-Every day is important in the history of the world; calendar is full of events, celebrations, rituals, customs, tragedies, festivals, and other happenings. Veterans Day is one of such days that carry the memories of the military veterans. Every nation in the world remembers its national veterans in every walk of life especially those who submitted their lives for the sake of state and nation. This remembrance, on one side, keeps the moral of the serving military veterans high, it also generates energy and pride in the people on the other. Thus, remembering the veterans creates more heroes in future. Woodrow Wilson was the first premier to proclaim Veterans Day on November 11, 1919 while in 1926, it was approved as legal holiday in all states and it is observed as official holiday even today in 2015. Proclaiming this national day, Wilson said:

“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn 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.”

A paid national day off is given to the employees while the little world in schools enjoys a holiday. Military men from American history are commemorated for their service in all states of America and the American people refresh the page of sacrifices of these national veterans in every November by paying homage to these veterans. History, thus, repeats itself every year in November.
