Friday, November 11, Veterans Day, Lexington joins Americans all over the country in paying tribute to our Veterans, thanking them for their service.
Veterans Day began as Armistice Day on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. It became a legal holiday in 1938, as a day "dedicated to the cause of world peace" and to honor the veterans of the Great War. In 1954, after America had fought both World War II and the Korean War, Congress changed the name to Veterans Day, a day to pay tribute to all veterans who have honorably served in war or peacetime.
