Veterans Day, celebrated on November 11th each year, is a day to honor all military veterans in the United States, including those who died while serving our country and those who are still living. On this day, we are thankful for their service and acknowledge the sacrifices they made without judgment. This federal holiday coincides with Remembrance Day and Armistice Day, which recalls the end of World War I and honors those who served during this time. The United States originally observed Armistice Day but transitioned to celebrating Veterans' Day after 1954.

On Veterans Day, people assemble at a memorial called “The Eternal Flame,” which honors those who died while serving our country. It also marks an eternal flame that has burned at the Tomb of Unknown Soldiers since 1921, commemorating unknown soldiers killed during war or conflict outside United States territory without any identifiable remains. Note that Veterans Day should not be confused with Memorial Day or Armed Forces Day. These two days of observance, although similar, take place earlier in the year in May.

How to Celebrate Veterans Day

Americans celebrate Veteran’s Day by holding parades, patriotic events, and retail sales. Observe this day by presenting any veterans you know with a military-themed gift like a mini US flag, commemorative pin, or practical gifts like Swiss army knives. Thank veterans who have served in the United States military for their contributions, patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for their country.

Gather around your living room and watch classic war films such as The Deer Hunter (1978), Saving Private Ryan (1998), and Band of Brothers (2001), highlighting the sacrifices these brave soldiers made for their country. Finally, don't forget to post an homage to our military veterans on social media with the hashtag #VeteransDay.
