Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. VETERANS TODAY The military men and women who serve and protect the U.S. come from all walks of life; they are parents, children, grandparents, friends, neighbors and coworkers, and are an important part of their communities. Here are some facts about the veteran population of the United States: • 16.1 million living veterans served during at least one war. • 5.2 million veterans served in peacetime. • 2 million veterans are women. • 7 million veterans served during the Vietnam War. • 5.5 million veterans served during the Persian Gulf War. • Of the 16 million Americans who served during World War II, about 558,000 are still alive. • 2 million veterans served during the Korean War.
