What is Veterans Day?
Veterans Day is a holiday that celebrates the bravery and heroism of those who have served in the United States military. It is a day to recognize and honor the sacrifices that these men and women have made for our country. We celebrate Veterans Day each year on November 11th, which marks the anniversary of the end of World War I.
The history of Veterans Day is a long and proud one. After World War I ended in 1918, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11th as Armistice Day to commemorate the end of the war. In 1954, Congress changed the name of Armistice Day to Veterans Day to honor all American veterans, not just those who fought in World War I.

It is also important to support veterans in our local communities. There are many organizations that help veterans transition back into civilian life, and there are always opportunities for volunteers to lend a hand.
These books help to educate young readers about the importance of Veterans Day, and they also serve as a reminder of the sacrifices that these brave men and women have made for our country.
