Today, the country pauses to remember those who have served in uniform -- and especially those who have given their lives in the name of freedom. It's Veterans' Day, and parades and ceremonies are scheduled throughout the country today in a tribute to American veterans.
It used to be called "Armistice Day" to honor the veterans of World War I. It was started 84 years ago by President Woodrow Wilson on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of World War I.
Now it is called Veterans' Day. President Bush is leading the nation in the annual tribute, laying a weath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetary.
and by the way. You're welcome.
