On the 100th Anniversary of World War I, a ceremonial ringing of bells will be occurring in communities across the country and the world as 11 a.m. crosses their time zones. 

Veterans Day, which became a national holiday in 1938, is a day to recognize the contributions of the nation’s veterans.

It was formerly called Armistice Day. The Armistice of 1918, ending World War I, was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

In 1954, Armistice Day was changed to Veterans Day.
