Armistice Day

To us in America the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.” Woodrow Wilson, November 11, 1919
 
November 11, forever to be known as Armistice Day. 
 
On “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month”, fighting on land, sea, and air was called to an end between Germany and the Allies in WWI
 
In 1954, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day to honor all those who have served in the United States Armed Forces, across all wars and military engagements, risking their lives to protect our freedom.
