Texas has no shortage of .pride for America’s troops, past and current. The men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country are honored on the National Veteran’s Day holiday, since President Woodrow Wilson dedicated November 11 as Armistice Day in 1919.
Armistice Day became a legal Federal holiday in 1938, and in 1954 changed to Veteran’s Day to honor American soldiers who fought in any war, not just World War I and II. There are now ceremonies and parades held across the country to commemorate the holiday, including those in cities all across Texas.
The U.S. Military Veterans Parade Association of San Antonio will host a parade on Saturday, November 9 which will run through downtown past the Alamo. Cedar Park Texas, located just northwest of Austin will hold a Veteran’s Day Parade and Art Contest on Saturday, November 9 at Veteran’s Memorial Park.
The Houston Salutes America’s Heroes Celebration will take place on Veteran’s Day, Monday, November 11 with a Veteran’s Job Fair and Health Fair at City Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a ceremony at City Hall starting at 11 a.m. and a parade at 12:30 p.m. through the streets of downtown.
