Veterans Day 2021
RPX is pleased to commemorate Veterans Day as well as Military Family Appreciation Month.
Veterans Day occurs on November 11 every year in the United States in honor of the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 that signaled the end of World War I, known as Armistice Day. In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially changed the name of the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day. While the day was initially picked to mark the end of World War I, it is now a national celebration to honor America’s veterans and their families, for their patriotism, love of their country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
The theme for the Veterans Day 2021 poster is centered on the centennial commemoration of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Located at Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb was initially dedicated by the Army on Armistice Day, November 11, 1921, with the burial of an unknown service member from World War I. Over the past century, additional unknowns have been buried at the Tomb, and the site has become a people’s memorial that inspires reflection on service, valor, sacrifice and mourning.
