Remembering Our Veterans

The Great War ends:  It was on November 11, 1918, at 11:00 a.m. (the eleventh day of the eleventh month at the eleventh hour) that the armistice or peace treaty went into effect that ended the Great War (what we now refer to as World War I).  It was a conflict that President Woodrow Wilson referred to as "the war to end all wars."

Honoring our Veterans:  Since that time, the commemoration of the day has been broadened as a time for us to honor the many men and women among us who have proudly and bravely served in our nation's military.

Pause and remember:  Whether Monday, November 12 is an official holiday and day off from work for you or not, it's good for all of us to pause during the day and remember with gratitude the men and women who have served this nation in uniform in order to preserve the incredible freedoms we enjoy.
