Veteran's 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.
