Veterans Day is coming up on Friday, November 11. The purpose of Veterans Day is to remember all the fallen heroes, and to thank veterans for their service. The first celebration of this event took place in 1947, in Birmingham, Alabama. A fact about Veterans Day is that it used to be called Armistice Day. Armistice Day only recognized the Allied forces during WWI. Its name was changed to Veterans Day to remember all fallen soldiers. Another interesting fact is that other countries also celebrate Veterans Day. Some countries include Canada and Australia.
