    FWCD Salutes Veterans

    The Fort Worth Country Day community paid tribute to and honored the nation’s heroes on Friday, November 10, and Monday, November 13. The tradition of Veterans Day began with Armistice Day. President Woodrow Wilson declared November 11 to be Armistice Day in 1919 to recognize veterans of World War I. On May 13, 1938, Armistice Day became a legal holiday. In the aftermath of World War II, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars. President Dwight D. Eisenhower made the first Veterans Day Proclamation later that year on October 8.
