Veterans Day

On June 4th, 1926, the United States Congress issued a concurrent resolution. Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), that the President of the United States is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples. World War I was over, beginning with an armistice in 1918 on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. And then we went to war again.
