While the first World war (WWI) back than was also called "the war to end all wars,", years after WWII started. Since WWI was not the last war, by the early 1950s, millions of Americans had served in WWII while fighting in the Korean War. Therefore the name Veterans Day was created, which replaced the previous Armistice Day from June 1, 1954. This way, also the younger generations of veterans were honored. It also coincides with other holidays like Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. Since major hostilities of WWI were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the Armistice with Germany went into effect, for that reason it is still celebrated on November 11th. In case the day falls in the weekend, a weekday is selected to celebrate the public holiday.
