To recall the services given by the military soldiers, Veterans Day is being celebrated in the USA every year on November 11. It is also known as Armistice Day. It is a federal holiday.
The day was first celebrated on November 11, 1919, to pay tribute to the soldiers who took part in World War I, right after one year of ending of World War I. However, it was declared as a holiday legally in 1938.
It is a day to admire the bravery of the military veterans and pay them a tribute in an honorable way. On this day, the whole nation reminds the extraordinary acts by the soldiers, because of which we are free.
The question arises here that how could we wish Veterans Day to someone? The answer is very simple; one can send a text message, post on Facebook, tweet, or simply exchange some words. For this purpose, you can use Veterans Day Quotes and, to solve your problem, we collected some words of appreciation and posted all of them here for you.
