LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Saturday is Veterans Day, which is celebrated every year on Nov. 11.
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, World War I officially ended with the Treaty of Versailles, which was signed on June 28, 1919. However, fighting ended when an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on Nov. 11, 1918.
“To us in American, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in this country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations,” then-President Woodrow Wilson said in Nov. 1919.
It is a chance to honor America’s heroes and those that have made sacrifices to serve our country. We’re rounded up several businesses and organizations across Southern Nevada that are having Veterans Day specials as well as different Veterans Day programs across the valley.
