On November 11th, 1919 President Woodrow Wilson addressed the country sharing the first Armistice Day message honoring those who fought in World War I.
In 1926 a Congressional resolution requesting that November 11th be designated as a day of observance with appropriate ceremonies held was adopted. And in 1938 Armistice Day was declared a legal holiday. The official name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day honoring all who have served in 1954.
Just as the holiday has evolved so has the face of those who serve. Currently over 20% of the military is comprised of women. Here are some of their stories of HOPE.
