Historical note: In 1954, the 83rd Congress of the United State renamed the federal holiday then known as Armistice Day (originally honoring veterans of World War I) as Veterans Day to honor veterans of all conflicts. The State of Georgia has hosted a Veterans Day in Georgia proclamation ceremony every year since 1954.
