USFK Honors and Recognizes All U.S. Military Veterans

PA-001-21 | Nov. 10, 2021

USAG Humphreys, Republic of Korea —

United States Forces Korea honors and recognizes all U.S. military veterans who selflessly served our great nation and defended freedom with a Veterans Day ceremony held on United States Army Garrison - Humphreys.

The Veterans Day Ceremony will be live streamed at 11:00 a.m., weather permitting at: www.facebook.com/myusfk/.

Veterans Day pays tribute to all military service members - past and present - who honorably served America throughout our great history.

Veterans Day, historically known as Armistice Day and officially recognized as a U.S. federal holiday beginning in 1938, celebrates the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month and signaling the official end of World War I in 1918.

In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially changed the name of the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day.

Throughout history, our veterans have served with patriotism and professionalism while defending and preserving our freedoms.

For their service, we owe a gratitude of thanks.
