On November 11, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson made the first official statement about Veterans Day, which was then known as "Armistice Day" because it commemorated the resolution of WWI a year earlier. In it, he described the U.S. as being "filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service" and called the victory an opportunity for America "to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations."
