The U.S. Army tweeted, “Today we honor those who served. Those who answered our nation’s call. Those who defend our families, our neighbors and the American way of life.”

The Navy retweeted a video from Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer, captioned: “The freedoms we enjoy, and the moments we share with our families and loved ones, were all earned for us, over and over again, by the American #veteran. Thank you to all who have served”

Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Karl Schultz tweeted, “Forever, we are brothers and sisters in arms. We share a bond forged through blood, sweat, and tears. To all those who have, and/or continue to serve, THANK YOU on this Veterans Day.”

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley tweeted, “To all our veterans who’ve worn the cloth of our nation, thank you for answering the call to serve a cause greater than self and for defending the democratic ideals of our Constitution.”

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper tweeted, “On this Veterans Day, I salute those who have served our great Nation. We are free because of the service & sacrifice of our Veterans, who courageously and fiercely fought to protect & defend our liberties. I honor their selfless service & incredible contributions to our Nation.”

Deputy Secretary of Defense David Norquist tweeted, “It was the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 that the fighting during World War I came to an end. Armistice Day as it was known became Veterans Day in 1954. Today we honor all those who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States.”

Veterans Day originated as”Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919 commemorating the first anniversary of World War I’s end.

Veterans Day was recognized for annual observance through a Congressional resolution passed in 1926, but didn’t become a national holiday until 1938, and wasn’t named “Veterans Day” until 1954.

The holiday serves to recognize all veterans of the American military, whether living or deceased.
