Details for 11.2 Dick. Penn. Veterans Day pg.2

VETERANS DAY Saturday, November 11th Veterans Day fall on November 11th each year. The World War I armistice was signed on November 11th ending hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect. On Veterans Day, we thank our veterans for their services. In 1919, President Wilson proclaimed the day should be “filed with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory”. In 1926, the United States Congress officially recognized the end of World War I and declared that the anniversary of the armistice should be commemorated with prayer and thanksgiving. The Congress also requested that the president should “issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United State to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples.” Veterans Day is celebrated with parades and church services in many places. The American flag is hung at half mast. A period of silence lasting two minutes may be held at 11 a.m. Federal Government offices are closed on November 11th.
