City

City of Houston celebrates Veterans Day


The WWI Allies and Germany met in France and signed an armistice to cease hostilities at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 1918. The day became known as Armistice Day. It was not until 1954 that the United States changed it Veterans Day.

Despite the cold temperatures, cloudy skies and a small group of protestors, many Houstonians came out in support, waving their American flags and yelling, “Thank you for your service!”

Meanwhile, veterans of all ages and war, as well various JROTC, law enforcements and firefighters marched along; some threw out candy from their floats or trucks, while others and UH’s own Spirit of Houston moved along to the beat.
