Toy soldiers made from wooden spoons stand at attention.

Show your favorite soldier how much you appreciate his or her contribution with these Veterans Day crafts.

Veterans Day is a day to celebrate the men and women who have served the United States in the armed forces. The holiday is observed on November 11, and was first celebrated in 1919.

This date was chosen because on November 11, 1918, the armistice to end World War I was signed -- this is also why in many countries people call the holiday Armistice Day.
