Every U.S. veteran has served in one of the five branches of the armed forces the Army, the Marine Corps, the Navy, the Air Force and the Coast Guard each branch has a different job to do, For example, the army mostly, works on land the Air Force works in the sky people in the Air Force fly planes and helicopters people in the Navy the Marines and the Coast Guard all spend a lot of time at sea but they can have other jobs too, For example, some people, in the Navy fly jets the branches are separate but they often work together they might work as a team to rescue someone who has at sea.
Veterans Day originally came out of World War one Americans had lost one hundred sixteen thousand men in that conflict this is a war on a big scale, that had not been seen by the rest of the world ever. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month The armistice was signed that ended hostilities in Europe a year later on the anniversary of President Woodrow Wilson declared that there would be Armistice Day and that we would remember the sacrifices of the men that served and their bravery and appreciate the victory this was done with parades and ceremonies and there was a two-minute cessation of business at 11:00 a.m.
In 1926 the Congress decided they would make a formal declaration it was not just a celebration of the soldiers that served in World War I, it was a celebration of peace and it was actually a peace holiday of course it was low early because in 1939 World War II began. In 1954 President Eisenhower in order to recognize the service of all those who served in World War II changed it to Veterans Day the last addition was in 2016 President Obama signed a Veterans Day moment of silence at 3:11 in the afternoon there supposed to be a 2 minute of silence recognized by the United States people in America
