History of Soldiers’ Day in El Salvador

The Armed Forces of El Salvador or armed forces were created in 1840 after the breakup of the United Provinces of Central America.

Along with other Central American countries, the nation declared its independence from Spain on September 15, 1821, and was part of the Federation of Central American States until that union dissolved in 1838.

Independence has been a tradition even through the many revolutions that have ruled the nation. Military dictatorship was the rule of government from 1931 to 1979.

In 1969, El Salvador invaded Honduras after Honduran landowners deported several thousand Salvadorans. The four-day war became known as the “football war” because it broke out during a football match between the two countries.

The United Provinces of Central America was a sovereign state in Central America that existed briefly from 1823 to 1840. It included the following Central American countries: El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua. Since the nationalism of each region is important to each people, the individual independence of each province has become an important goal of the regions.

El Salvador’s armed forces consist of the army, air force and navy, which were re-established in 1952 after a 40-year absence. The event that led to the creation of the armed forces is now known as Soldiers’ Day.
