Also, Veterans Day differs from Memorial Day in that it is as much a celebration of life as it is military service.

An average of 6,000 soldiers died every day during the war, and more than 21 million were wounded.

In a proclamation dated November 1, U.S. President Donald Trump said, "During National Veterans and Military Families Month, we honor the significant contributions made by American service members, their families and their loved ones".

The names of Kent veterans who have served in the United States military from August 2, 1990 to the present are inscribed on the new monument. The holiday has endured just as mankind's penchant for armed conflict has endured through World War II, wars in Korea and Vietnam, and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, with lesser conflicts scattered about.

Veteran's Day began as Armistice Day, marking the end of the fighting in World War 1 at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

Most American holidays have gone through multiple levels of change along their way to being the holidays that we now celebrate and Veterans Day is no exception.

In addition, local businesses may be offering Veterans Day specials to veterans and active military members. So at the urging of the veterans service organizations, the 83rd Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting in its place the word "Veterans". A war that had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation's history.

The next development in the story of Veterans Day unfolded in 1968, when Congress passed the Uniform Holidays Bill, which sought to ensure three-day weekends for federal employees-and encourage tourism and travel-by celebrating four national holidays (Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Columbus Day) on Mondays. The bill was meant to ensure three-day weekends for Federal employees by celebrating four national holidays on Mondays: Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Columbus Day.

The Department of Veterans Affairs says that the commemoration of this day on the true November 11 date was a matter of historic and patriotic significance to a great number of citizens. We also do so because it's right and appropriate to honor our veterans. We have plenty of organizations locally that serve veterans, such as the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, AMVETS and others.
