Veteran’s Day is an amazing day on which the people of United States honor their soldiers who have served them and sacrificed a lot for them. On this day the general public holds many types of festivities in order to honor the countrymen who have served their beloved nation in war and peace times. Different kinds of songs are sung and festive parades are conducted in honor of the beloved Veterans.
In the very early hours of the day November 11th, 1918, The Allied Powers which composed of the United States, Great Britain, France, and others had agreed with Germany to end the fighting during World War 1. Later that day a document of ceasefire or better known as Armistice was also signed in Paris on November 11th, 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. This day was a historic moment in the history of humanity and everyone all around the world had considered it a very important day. A year later many nations had declared November 11th as a National Holiday and were named as Armistice Day. This was to ensure that all those who lost their lives in Wars, have been honored and have been remembered. Many countries still celebrate Armistice Day as a tribute and a day of remembrance to the soldiers who had laid their lives in deadly wars. Americans celebrate this day as Veterans Day which is the same as the other countries but with a different name.
Many countries still observe a moment of silence usually of two mins at exactly 11’o clock in the morning, the first minute for the ones who died fighting in the First World War and the second minute for those who survived and are still suffering from the consequences, which includes also the families of the soldiers. There are also a lot of ceremonies held in South America and Australia as they were also severely affected by the war. In South Africa, people observe the moment in darkness and silence. Great Britain refers to this as the Remembrance Day and in America, this is referred to as the Veteran’s Day.
Now in honor of this day, we have made some Veteran’s Day Images for you to share with your friends and family. You can easily share these images via Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger. You can even use these Veterans Day Images and Sayings to send to their relatives who are also Veterans, in a way to honor them in the smallest way possible.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag. –Zell Miller
