Veterans Day Holiday Coloring
and Veterans Day Coloring Page Sheets are a great way to teach Kids about the annual American holiday honoring all
US military veterans from all wars. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11.
Veterans Day Coloring pages are fun and educational.
Veteran's Day is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11,
the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.
(Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)
Veterans Day Coloring pages teach that U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 12, 1919.
The United States Congress passed a on June 4, 1926, requesting the President issue a proclamation to observe November 11 as Veterans Day.
After World War II, there was a desire to recognize the sacrifice of veterans from all wars and a bill changing the holiday designation was
pushed through Congress. President Dwight Eisenhower signed this change into law on May 26, 1954, but Congress later amended this act on
November 8, 1954, replacing "Armistice" with Veterans, and it has been known as Veterans Day since.
