Veterans Day at Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library

On November 11, 1918, President Wilson announced the armistice, or temporary halt of fighting in World War I, and proclaimed that November 11 would forever be Armistice Day in the United States. The armistice took effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The day has evolved into Veterans Day during which all veterans are remembered and honored, and, for years, the entire country observed a moment of silence at 11 a.m.
