Veterans Day is a national holiday that is celebrated on Nov. 11 and dedicated to expressing appreciation for both fallen and living veterans.

Originally called Armistice Day, Veterans Day commemorates those who served in America’s Armed Forces. Veterans Day became an official holiday in 1954 after President Dwight D. Eisenhower passed a bill to establish this celebration. This tradition was started after World War I in tribute to the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.

“I think it is very important to recognize the people who have made this country what it is,” said Deputy Mike Legge, Cam High’s school resource officer. Legge’s son is currently serving in the military.

Andres Estrada, a Cam High school supervisor, is a veteran. “It was an honor to serve and give my life to my country,” said Estrada. He remembers the rigorous training and lessons he learned while serving with people who left their families in order to protect their country.

Veterans Day is also celebrated by civilians. Ms. Heidi Resnik, the librarian at Cam High, said, “It’s a sacred day where we can honor not only those who served or are serving, but also the families. Students, wives, and husbands of veterans are appreciated for the sacrifices that they are making.”

Schools and some work places all around America took Monday, Nov. 12 off to commemorate the holiday.
