Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
First Presbyterian Church of Littleton wishes to thank all veterans who have committed themselves to the service of our nation. Many of our own members are veterans who proudly served.
We’d also like to help those veteran’s in need in any way that we can. One way we can help is a hearty meal on Thanksgiving Day. Invite a veteran to join us for Thanksgiving. Read more about hour Thanksgiving meal HERE
