November 11 — Honoring those who have served.

November 11 — Honoring those who have served.

On November 11 of 1918, the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11thmonth, an armistice went into effect, a cessation of hostilities between the Allied Nations and Germany, ending the “war to end all wars.” The official end of World War I would not be declared for seven more months, at the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, but the end actually came on that November day, when the truce was signed, the opposing forces laid down their weapons, and the war known as the “Great War” was over. Now, all over the world, people set aside this day, November 11, to honor those who have served their countries well —bravely and selflessly. 

Armistice Day, Remembrance Day, Veterans Day. A day to honor all those who have served.
