(SALEM, Ore.) - Communities throughout Oregon will be hosting ceremonies, parades, and special gatherings to honor America's military veterans and commemorate Veterans Day.

The Oregon Dept. of Veterans' Affairs has a new Internet link for viewing the updated list of Veterans Day events occurring statewide: www.oregon.gov/odva/Pages/2015-Veterans-Day-Events.aspx.

Veterans Day originated as "Armistice Day" on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. A Congressional resolution in 1926 made November 11th an annual observance and in 1938 it became a national holiday.

In 1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a resolution that changed Armistice Day to Veterans Day so as to honor veterans who served in all American wars.
