Happy Veteran’s Day from US Lawns in Beaumont

Happy Veteran’s Day from US Lawns of Southeast Texas

Veteran’s Day was originally called Armistice Day, commemorating the end of World War I.

World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. However, the fighting ended about seven months before that when the Allies and Germany put into effect an armistice on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

For that reason, Nov. 11, 1918, was largely considered the end of “the war to end all wars” and dubbed Armistice Day. In 1926, Congress officially recognized it as the end of the war, and in 1938, it became an official holiday, primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I.

But then World War II and the Korean War happened, so on June 1, 1954, at the urging of veterans service organizations, Congress amended the commemoration yet again by changing the word “armistice” to “veterans” so the day would honor American veterans of all wars.

Southeast Texas has always been a community supportive of our US soldiers and veterans.

Veteran’s Day is a great day to take a veteran in your life out to lunch and to let them know you appreciate their service.

US Lawns of Beaumont wishes all of our servicemen and women a Happy Veteran’s Day – you are appreciated.
