Veterans Day

Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, for honoring military veterans of the United States Armed Forces (who were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable). It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which are celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. At the urging of major U.S. veteran organizations, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.

In honor of this holiday, clubs were held in our corner. The first club (Native speaker hour) was dedicated to this topic. Our fellow of Fulbright Javi introduced what kind of holiday it is, when it is celebrated and history. A documentary about that day was shown at the next club (Movie Club).
