Salt Lake Community College held its Veterans Day flag raising ceremony Wednesday morning at Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
Veterans Day is a federal holiday recognizing U.S. veterans from all wars. President Woodrow Wilson originally proclaimed Nov. 11 as Armistice Day in 1919 on the one-year anniversary of the end of World War I. The day became a federal holiday in 1938, and after World War II and the Korean War, Congress renamed the holiday to Veterans Day in 1954.
