Veterans Day Celebrated in the City of Houston In November

For veterans, November 11th is a day of celebration in the Houston area and throughout the United States. Because Lone Star State has more than 250,000 veterans, it’s the second-largest population of veterans in the US. The City of Houston’s Veterans Day Ceremony happens on Friday, November 11, 2022, at 10:00 am. Acknowledgments and local keynote speakers will be on hand to honor local heroes. Included is a moment of silence at 11:00 am to commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that brought WWI to an end.

What Is Veterans Day?

It’s a day to honor everyone who has served in the US military in any capacity, including:
• Army
• Navy
• Marines
• Air Force
• Coast Guard

First known as “Armistice Day,” it was a worldwide holiday to mark the end of WWI when the Allies formed an armistice to stop fighting on “The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.”

Then in 1947, the term “Veterans Day” was used in Birmingham, AL for National Veterans Day. WWI Veteran Raymond Weeks held the first Veterans Day to honor the living veterans along with their deceased colleagues. This began a tradition of honoring veterans from all branches, whether they served in war or peacetime. Civilians also honor veterans on this day alongside current and retired military personnel.

If you can not attend Veteran Day activities, you may want to take a moment in your day to reflect on the significance of the contributions of the service of out veterans.
