Happy Veteran's Day

Veteran's Day gives Americans the opportunity to celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. Veterans. Formerly known as Armistice Day, it was originally set as a legal U.S holiday to honor the end of WWI. In 1954, after having been through WWII and the Korean War, Congress changed the name to Veterans Day.

Famous Veterans include: Tony Bennett (Army, WWII); George Steinbrenner (Air Force, served as an aide to the commending general); Alan Alda (Army Reserve, Korean War); Bill Cosby (Navy, Korean War); and Montel Williams (Marines and Navy).
