            Veterans Day, also referred to as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, is also celebrated in other parts of the world and marks the anniversary of the end of World War I, which formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect.   United States President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed Armistice Day on November 11, 1919. In proclaiming the holiday, he said, “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”  The United States observed Armistice Day on November 11, until it evolved into the current Veterans Day holiday in 1954.  

 

            We ask that you take a moment and thank our all of our Veterans for their valued service, bravery and sacrifices.  Please join us for our 66th Annual Douglas County Veterans Day Parade on Thursday, November 11, 2021, in downtown Roseburg, starting at 11:00 am.
