Veterans Day Events in Tuscaloosa
Veterans Day was established and signed into law on May 26, 1954 to to honor all of those who have served and are currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
The remaining hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day but renamed the holiday Veterans Day in 1954.
On Friday, there will be several programs in Tuscaloosa recognizing Veterans Day and paying tribute to those men and women who have fought and are still frighting to keep our country free.
