Next Wednesday, Nov. 11, our nation will recognize the 90th anniversary of what was known for years as Armistice Day but what we now call Veterans Day.
President Woodrow Wilson chose that date because, in 1918, it marked the formal end of World War I, the first major global conflict that, unfortunately, did not live up to one of its popular nicknames: The War to End All Wars.
The decision to include all veterans, not just those who served in World War I, came in 1954, when Congress passed and President Eisenhower signed that intent into law.
