The Harris Hill Volunteer Fire Company Honors all that have served.

Veterans Day has been around for a long time, but it first started out as Armistice Day.

U.S. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11, 1919, to be Armistice Day to honor members of the armed forces who were killed during World War I. The date commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compi├Ęgne, France.

It was in 1954, after World War II and after the Korean Conflict, that Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting in its place the word "Veterans". On June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

On October 8, 1954, the first Veterans Day Proclamation was issued by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
