FROM PDX RETRO ~

United States President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed November
11, 1919 as “Armistice Day” near the end of World War l.

An act of congress in 1938 struck out the word "Armistice" and in its 
place the word "Veterans” was inserted. With the approval of this
legislation on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor
American veterans of all wars.
