Lincoln High School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota will be hosting a Veteran’s Day Ceremony this month. The event is co-sponsored by the Military and Veterans Affairs Committees, along with the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce and other local organizations catering for veterans.

This event is set for some colorful logo designs as these kinds of events involve displays of the U.S. flag.

The event will feature a special flag presentation from various military, veterans’ and civics’ clubs from the Sioux Falls area. It will also feature music from the Singing Legionnaires from American Legion Post 15, as well as a keynote speech from South Dakota National Guard, Brigadier Michels.

Veteran’s Day is a historical day for the U.S. It is traced back to the First World War when combat officially ceased on November 11, 1918. This was when the famous armistice between the Allied Nations and Germany was called for on the eleventh hour of the day. As a result, President Woodrow Wilson named it Armistice Day on the anniversary in 1919. President Dwight Eisenhower later changed it to Veterans Day.

The events is scheduled to take place at 10:30 am on Sunday, November 11. It is free for all to attend. There will be a service at 9:30 am and then the ceremony with follow at 10:30 am.
