Why November 11th for Veteran’s Day?

Veteran’s Day is celebrated on November 11th because WWI ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. In 1926 Congress created a national holiday known as Armistice day. However when another world war broke out, in 1954, President Eisenhower changed the day to recognize all veterans. In 1968, Veterans Day was changed to the fourth Monday in October. However, November 11th had significant historical precedence, and in 1978, Veterans Day observance was returned to the original day.
