Rockcastle Florist The meaningful history surrounding Veterans Day on November 11th is interesting and quite unique. In 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, all major hostilities of World War I were formally ended.Ā  Veterans Day was initially referred to as Armistice Day and was created to celebrate the service of all U.S. military veterans. A wonderful gesture of complete respect and appreciation for their sacrifices is to honor a Veteran on this special day by giving them a flower arrangement or plant from Rockcastle Florist. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson gave a memorable speech where he highly commended the men and women of the United States military. "To us in America the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations". Other countries celebrate both Armistice Day and Remembrance Day in remembrance to the end of World War I.
