On November 11, 1918, an agreement ended the fighting of World War I. The agreement was called an "armistice." The world hoped t
hat World War I was the war that would end all wars, so November 11 soon became known as "Armistice Day." On that day, many nations remembered their soldiers who fought in World War I. Sadly, World War II began less than 20 years after, and even that wasn't the end of war. So in 1954, America's Armistice Day was renamed "Veterans Day." This was done to appoint November 11 a holiday to remember all of the brave soldiers who help to preserve freedom for Americans and people all over the world.
Every year, Veteran’s Day is observed as a U.S. holiday on November 11. On this day, towns across America honor veterans with parades and ceremonies to thank them for their service.

A. Pausing before speaking to make the point stronger
Basically, rhetorical devices are a set of techniques used to convey one's message more effectively.
This is used both in texts and speeches. However, speaking allows some other additional techniques unavailable in written texts.
Speakers are able to change their intonation, to speak louder to emphasize certain points. They can also use their hand and face gestures to stress the importance of parts of the speech. Of course, for the same reason, they can make dramatic pauses before or after sentences.
