In the United States, there would only be one more year of Armistice Day parades; a holiday originally created to honor those that served in World War I and was set on the date the conflict ended on November 11, 1918. To expand its meaning to honor those that served in World War II and the Korean War, in 1954, the holiday was officially changed to Veterans Day. Our friends in the Commonwealth nations refer to it as Remembrance Day.

No matter the name, and wherever the service was rendered, always know it is always respected and appreciated.
