Veterans Day

Today, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day. Originally it was Armistice Day, celebrated to commemorate the signing of the armistice with Germany on Nov. 11, 1918, during World War I. In 1954 Congress changed the name to Veterans Day, honoring veterans of all wars.

This memorial is in front of John Barry Hall. “To the Villanovans who served our country during the Second World War that this nation and her vision of freedom and human dignity should endure. Dedicated June 6, 1998”
