(Happy) Veterans' Day 2016
The dictionary meaning of veteran is that someone who has been in an army or navy during a war. Veterans’ Day derives from “Armistice Day”. In 1954, the president of US has changed the name of the holiday name. The date had been chosen to celebrate the signing of the ceasefire with Germany in World War I. In 1926, the councils suggested that November 11 becomes a national Veterans’ Day. However, it became a holiday in the beginning of the year 1938. After this date, every 11th day of November is celebrated as Veterans’ Day in United States officially. This year, Veterans’ Day 2016 is celebrating on the second Friday of November. In addition, There are almost 24.5 million military veterans in the United States according to military documents.

There is one more special day called as Memorial Day which is also related to US army. However, the common mistake is that Veterans’ Day is confused with this day. While Memorial Day brings honor to veterans who died during military service, Veterans’ Day celebrates all US military veterans.
