Veterans Day, originally known as “Armistice Day,” was first commemorated on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Veterans Day honors our military veterans, the valiant men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
Master Sergeant Tanya Whitney of the U.S. Army, an aircraft mechanic and maintenance supervisor on both helicopters and fixed winged aircraft, who served in the Middle East as part of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, presents the 100 year-old history of Veterans Day.
