The War to End All Wars (Lies)
At the urging of major U.S. veteran organizations, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954. Veterans Day is distinct from Memorial Day, a U.S. public holiday in May. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who have died while in military service. After the end of the Second World War, the Australian and British governments changed the name to Remembrance Day, since Armistice Day was no longer an appropriate title for a day that would commemorate all war dead.
