Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918 at 11:11am. On November 11, 1921 at 11:11 the USA, France and England each buried an unknown soldier in honor of those who died in World War I. In June 1954, President Eisenhower changed the name of Armistice Day to Veteran's Day to honor all the USA Veterans.

Every year at 11.11 am on 11th November, a combined color guard representing all military services executes "Present Arms" at the tomb. The nation pays tribute to the veterans and keeps a moment of silence.
